The Associated Press: Mouthpiece for Murderers
I disagree with Henry with regards to the AP making a Faustian bargain with the castro regime. It's way beyond anything Faustian. This latest report is nothing short of collusion.
Barely four days ago the regime murdered Oswaldo Paya. Neither the cause of his death - a "car accident" - nor the day and date of same are coincidences. What better day to murder your enemy, the last remaining thorn in your side than a Sunday - a slow news day in general - and, specifically, the Sunday before your biggest national holiday?
What better way to control the narrative is there? Especially when you have a fawning international press whom you have content control over.
I found today's AP piece on raul castro on the front page of Yahoo news. I don't recall there being a front page AP headline on Paya's death and I wont bother to waste my time confirming it, either. I'm certain it would be a fruitless effort.
So now all we'll hear about and from Cuba is raul's empty, rehashed and regurgitated rhetoric on his "willingness to sit down with the US." The murder of a peaceful, moderate dissident and champion for human rights falls by the wayside.
The method and date of Oswaldo Paya's death were carefully crafted and all you'll need as proof of the AP, and their fellow media cohorts collusion in this murder will be their absolute silence on same as of today.
