  • asombra: Myers looks like a snotty prick who tried to be too clever by half and was merely USED. Foolish tool.

  • asombra: Birnbaum looks like Andy Rooney possessed by the devil. Weiland looked seriously creepy, like some kind of pervert. And I love...

‘Discover Cuba’ with a ‘Journalist’

The executive editor for Dubuque, Iowa's Telegraph Herald, Brian Cooper, has published a full-page ad in his newspaper inviting his readers to join him on a trip to "Discover Cuba." Since this trip is being led by Mr. Cooper, a journalist, one would think the itinerary would include visiting with dissidents, documenting the human rights violations and repression on the island, and bringing supplies to Cuba's independent journalists, including shows of support for the many independent journalists imprisoned by the Castro dictatorship.

Don't be silly.

Cooper and his fellow travelers (pun intended) will be whooping it up in Cuba with the rest of the callous and apathetic tourists, visiting beaches, clubs, restaurants, and enjoying several guided tours provided by officials of Cuba's totalitarian dictatorship.

Via the Telegraph Herald:

Editor's notes: THMedia partnering in tour of Cuba in 2013

Brian Cooper TH executive editor

It's not often that I show up in a full-page advertisement, even in my own newspaper, but then again it's not often that I have the opportunity to tour Cuba.

However, the U.S. government has eased the travel ban to allow "person-to-person" tours loaded with cultural activities.

Consider making the trip to this country that has for decades been off-limits to Americans.

    In a word, obscene, not to mention thoroughly disreputable. This so-called journalist looks like a useful idiot and may be worse; he has zero credibility. But then again, “what difference does it make?”
