The BBC on selling cars in Cuba

I know the Babalu crowd doesn’t need anybody explaining how and why this story is ridiculous. Still, I personally always find it interesting to observe the way the press approaches “reform” in Cuba.

Here’s the report from the BBC’s Michael Voss.

Stop the presses! Cuban cabs are old!

If you’re curious to read my thoughts on the story and what it says about journalism in Cuba, check out the first (and, so far, only) post on my own blog.

Note: My blog’s will be a blend of content related to Cuba, marketing, Wisconsin, and other stuff. I’ll be sure to always share Cuba-related content here on Babalu, though.

  1. Wow! Nicholas, you hit the nail square on the head!

    …if these criticisms of the way things used to be is so reflective of popular sentiment that the BBC saw fit to give it so much time in such a short story, where was the BBC before these reforms, when making such a comment would have been an indictment of the status quo, rather than amounting to praise for the reform?…
