Today’s must read comes from Uncommon Sense, the blog of Babalu contributor Marc Masferrer. It’s about a subject that is very near to my heart: Oscar Elias Biscet. I think the plight of this man and what he represents (and could represent to freedom-loving people if they knew about him) to the fight for Cuban freedom has gotten short shrift from the international media.
When Brian Williams and NBC News was recently down in Cuba they didn’t mention Biscet. Do you think they would have gone to South Africa in the 80s and not mentioned Mandela? Marc also dissects the problem in getting the message out there but he rightly points out that the information is there if the MSM only chose to do something with it.
