Hey, Castro gave us a “News” Bureau–Whaddaya Expect?!

From the Castro-sanctioned AP just today:

"unless Cuban President Raul Castro's government agrees to release 26 ailing political prisoners."

"the Caribbean island has been ruled by brothers Fidel and Raul Castro since they ousted dictator Fulgencio Batista in 1959"

Not that it started yesterday. In fact, from 57-59 the AP's "news" dispatches from New York were authored in full by Julio 26 agent in New York, Mario Llerena--who admits as much in his own book!--and who was main contact from Castro to-- none other than: HERBERT MATTHEWS!

The immensely shrewd and sagacious Llerena, by the way, fled Cuba just ahead of a Communist death-squad shortly before the liberator-saint-hero hailed in his AP press dispatches, took power.
