While the media is busy feeling a collective thrill up their legs working as publicists for the Castro regime on this 50th anniversary of the enslavement of Cuba, their reports will most likely miss this small, yet very important anniversary today.
On January 7, 1959, the United States recognized the new government of Cuba, six days after Fidel Castro led the overthrow of Fulgencio Batista.
I am sure that if they could find a way to get their arms around this very telling historical fact and spin it in a way to make the US look bad and the Castro dictatorship look good, they would report it. But as talented a publicist they are, facts are still something they prefer to avoid. Since this little historical event is factual, and their claim that Batista was a U.S. backed dictator is fantasy, they will instead go only with what they know and report the fantasy version of history.
It is one of those sticky things that the media and leftists deplore; facts can be so inconvenient.
