I saw this New York Times article this morning and the only good thing I can say about it is that at least this rag is consistent: They will do whatever it takes to spin the tyrannical Cuban dictatorship in a positive light. Just as the mainstream media heralded the weight loss the Cuban population experienced at the hands of the dictatorship’s cruelty as a hidden gift contributing to lower cholesterol and heart disease, this new report laments the fall of Marxism on the island, the rescinding of the US embargo, and the alleged damage all this freedom will have on the environment. I read this garbage and in all honesty, I decided to wait until tomorrow to write something about it because it just left me seething.
But tonight, just when it seemed there is no hope for truth and justice in this world, I came across this editorial from Investors Business Daily.
The New York Times blubbers about how Cuba’s environment will suffer in a post-U.S. embargo era of increased tourism. Better to preserve a “priceless ecological resource” than to free people from oppression. It is becoming increasingly more difficult to take the environmental movement, and science and environmental reporters, seriously because of stories such as the Christmas Day hand-wringer “Conserving Cuba, After the Embargo.”
There are people out there willing to tell the truth, and they are quite aware of the lies the mainstream media purposely disseminates in defense of the indefensible Cuban dictatorship. Even though I am not the conspiracy theory, tinfoil hat wearing type of guy, I have to say these lies are knowingly told. Are we expected to believe the media has gotten it wrong about Cuba for 48 years now? Not even they are that brainless.
