SHAME

Rare is the evening where I sit down to watch the local news broadcast. I just can't stomach them for the most part as what you're getting is recycled news regurgitated by a talking head with poundcake thick make-up.

But I felt compelled to monitor our local news broadcasts last night, being that this is Miami, a city with a huge Cuban-American community, and of course that a Cuban prisoner of conscience was basically murdered by the regime that incarcerated him.

Not a one mentioned the death of Orlando Zapata Tamayo during their six o'clock broadcasts.

Nor do they have any information on this heartbreaking story up on their website:

NBC6
WFOR CBS (who ran a 5 minute piece on a woman's cat being accidentally killed)
WPLG (who have a piece on Lula stating the fidel is alive and doing well)
WSVN Fox

Four stations serving a community and not a single one covered the murder of a man who was only seeking his freedom.
