The media’s lasting love affair with brutally repressive and murderous communist dictatorships

Jumping to the defense of China’s communist dictatorship after it unleashed coronavirus on the world is nothing new for the media. For decades, they have been fawning over and covering for murderous communist regimes such as Cuba’s Castros and other leftist tyrannies.

Cuban American filmmaker and writer Agustin Blazquez and Jaums Sutton explain at LaurenceJarvickOnline:

The ‘Liberal’ American Media Has Been Unmasked

It baffles me how anyone can sit and watch newscasts about Coronavirus on CNN, MSNBC or the former big three TV networks of the past.

Not long after I came to the U.S., simply by watching NBC, ABC and CBS, I realized their bias during the Vietnam War.

Their reporting contributed to the Communist takeover of South Vietnam, and the death of 58,220 American soldiers and 1 million after Communism in Vietnam and 2 million in Cambodia.  
They have a lot of blood in their hands.

While U.S. so-called “liberal” media was silent for years during Hitler’s National Socialism in Germany in relation to Jews, after WW2 they didn’t have any other alternative once others had exposed those crimes in the Nuremberg Trials.

However, the media subsequently failed to report 20 million killed in the Soviet Union since 1917 or 65 million in China’s Mao Zedong since 1949.  As well as the result of Communism taking hold around the world. Herbert Matthews, in The New York times in February of 1957 promoted the false image of Castro as a hero in the mountains of Cuba and supported him after his guerrilla takeover of Cuba imposing a criminal communist regime that killed many.

Yet Castro caused extraordinary pain and suffering, as he completely ruined the economy and prosperity of a capitalist island.

I cannot forget the glowing and romantic reports on NBC, ABC, CBS and PBS by Dan Rather, Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, Peter Jennings, Bryant Gumbel, and others with interviews of Fidel Castro and his regime officials. 

Sympathy went to them, instead of Cuban victims.

Most media reports made Cuban exiles in the U.S. vomit or get ulcers. Yet when Cuban exiles criticized those propaganda pieces by writing and calling the networks or newspapers, it was to no avail.

  1. “Most media reports made Cuban exiles in the U.S. vomit or get ulcers.” Not least because such reports were both deceptive and spectacularly presumptuous, unbelievably so, which is like lying to someone who knows you’re a lying SOB and still acting like you’re a clearly superior person.

    And some people wonder why we’re “bitter.” Lord have mercy.

  2. I can only imagine how much of a trophy that photo and the related interview were for Walters. Well, at least she didn’t literally go to bed with the bastard (that we know of), like that other “journalist,” Lisa Howard. It’s not much, but I suppose it’s something. Lord, the revulsion.
