“Of course I’m serious..”

“Contrary to what many right-wingers believe, the media’s allergy to calling the Castro brothers “dictators” does not result from an alleged leftist bias by journalists. The international media treated former Chilean dictator Gen. Augusto Pinochet with similar respect, until he died.” (Andres Oppenheimer, Aug, 12, 2015).

“Hey Keith! Check out the title of Oppenheimer’s prize-winning and widely-hailed book! It was PUBLISHED IN 1991!…Any wonder why Oppenheimer’s a big star at the Miami Herald?!”

“Le RRRONCA!!!”

  1. Even if what Oppenheimer says about Pinochet were true, that does NOT alter the reality of the media’s “allergy” to calling the Castro brothers dictators, nor does it make it anything other than biased BS. In other words, is Oppenheimer stupid or just playing dumb? Honestly, you’d think people like him would have enough self-respect to say nothing instead of sounding so very dubious. The problem, of course, is that they don’t have to worry about that, because only “those people” will call them on it, and they know that won’t hurt them.
