On NPR’s Sycophancy for Castroism
Even pinkos should be offended by NPR’s latest infomercials on behalf of the Castro-regime, if not by the content, then by the cartoonish and unprofessional presentation of the propaganda. See Spot run. See Dick and Jane play. “Good grief, NPR!” Castro himself might wince. “I know you mean well. And it’s one thing to earn your Havana bureau. But please, some subtlety and maturity would help. You sound like Igor complimenting his master.”
NPR's David Green has much to learn from NPR’s other Cuba correspondents Nick Miroff, who’d never attempt anything as amateururish and crudely propagandistic as Green’s recent "reporting" from Cuba. Miroff, who also contributes to the Washington Post, is married to the daughter of one of Castro’s top KGB protégés. Miroff’s late father-in-law Manuel Piniero founded and headed the Castro regime’s secret police and international terror agency the Dirección General de Inteligencia (DGI.) As often happens to top players in his profession, (Yezhov, Yagoda, Beria in the mother country) Piniero himself was offed in 1998 after his usefulness to the Castros expired. Not that you’d guess any of Miroff’s background (and what might be influencing his NPR and Washington Post “reporting”) from the Washington Post and NPR bios of their valued Latin American correspondent.
Just thought you should know.
Our friends at Townhall help disseminate some items that might (it's a long shot, but possible) raise some eyebrows outside the tiny Cuban-American informational ghetto.
