It’s the official paper of Castrogonia’s Communist Party, and it’s the only source of printed news for Cubans on the island.
And now it has a new chief editor.
Pelayo Terry has been “liberated” from his position due to “errors” he supposedly committed.
What a fun place to live, Castrogonia. So unpredictable. Every minute is ripe with the potential for surprises!
And every word uttered or printed is equally ripe with the potential for disgrace, imprisonment, or execution.
And “liberation” or “freedom” means only one thing: getting fired from your job.
From Marti Noticias:
The director of the newspaper Granma de Cuba, Pelayo Terry, was dismissed “in response to errors committed in the fulfillment of his responsibilities” and will be replaced at the moment by Oscar Sánchez, until now deputy director of that newspaper, the most important on the island.
The decision today occupies a space on the iconic red and black cover of the newspaper, where a brief note indicates that the leadership of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC, the only legal party) “decided to free Pelayo Pelayo Terry (“decidió liberar como director”) from his position as editor of the Granma newspaper.”
