The forgotten detail: Cuba ranks second only to Iran in violations of internet freedom

A small but incredibly consequential detail completely ignored by the media during their hysterical coverage of the "Cuban Twitter" manufactured scandal.

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

Reminder: Cuba Ranks as World's 2nd Worst Internet Freedom Violator

With all the news and fake outrage by U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) regarding the "Cuban Twitter" program, it's important to remember why efforts to provide the Cuban people with connectivity and technology platforms is so important.

According to the most recent Freedom on the Net report, a yearly compilation of Internet freedom by Freedom House:

Cuba ranked as the world's 2nd worst violator of Internet and digital media freedom.

Only Iran ranked worse. North Korea was not ranked due to lack of any information.

Cuba ranked worse than Syria, Belarus, Burma, Bahrain, Sudan and Egypt -- all countries that Senator Leahy supports funding Internet freedom projects for.
