MSM – Conspiracy of Lies?

For almost five decades, the MSM has been castro’s dependable propaganda outlet. Year after year of praise for the worlds longest reigning dictator, completely ignoring the executions, the human rights violations, completely ignoring the truth about fidel castro and his regime. Earlier this month, Carlos Eire exposed the NYT bias when they tried to get him to write a slanted article about the Miami exile community. Now George of The Real Cuba has a post about BBC doing the exact same thing.

An excerpt from George’s post:

On August 2 of this year an English newspaper, The Guardian, published an article titled “What future after Fidel,” written by John Harris, who according to his website is a rock journalist and freelance writer. Harris had traveled to Cuba to make a film for  Newsnight, a nightly TV program on the BBC.

Here is part of what he wrote: “One thing should certainly be kept in mind. Cuba may look forlorn, all peeling buildings and pockmarked roads. Its economy may have long since tumbled into creakinganarchy. But unlike the old states of eastern Europe, the revolution has a few genuine jewels to defend: chiefly, its education system, and globally acclaimed healthcare.
I travelled to Cuba to make a film for Newsnight’s new series, The World’s Best Public Services. We spent four days in Havana exploring a health system that emphasises preventive care, locks doctors into their local populations and is built around a simplicity from which the NHS would do well to learn.”

Now, a blog called “Biased BBC” makes reference to a discussion during an episode of Newsnight, which took place last week.  “The most disgraceful thing about the whole show, though, was the first film which involved a rock journalist and regular Guardian writer called John Harris (who even the BBC admitted was “a left-wing writer”) going to Cuba to wax rhapsodically about their health-care system. Moreover, when Paxman (the moderator) challenged him, saying that perhaps this was a rose-tinted view, he said that he had been TOLD — not by a Fidel flunkey, but by the Newsnight people – to do a “positive, proselytizing” story. (Oops!)”

In other words, he was told in advance that his article about Cuba’s health services had to be positive! Wouldn’t that be unethical? How many American newspapers, radio and TV networks could be doing the same thing and we would never find out?

How many indeed, how many honest stories about Cuba have you seen in the MSM?
