Stifling of the Press in Cuba; MSM Yawns

Newsbusters brings our attention to the expulsion of three Western reporters (one each from the BBC, the Chicago Tribune, and Mexico's El Universal) by Cuba because they upset "el presidente para la vida" Fidel Castro and his cronies.

Notes Rich Noyes,

While journalists howl at the indignity of Helen Thomas being moved about six feet, from the first row to the second row of the new White House press room, there's been relative silence about the Cuban dictatorship's expulsion of Western journalists who published stories unflattering to the communist leadership.

Be sure to read the whole thing, with the accompanying link to the full story at Investor's Business Daily.

Where's the outrage? Where's actor/foreign affairs expert Tim Robbins when we need him to talk about a real "chill wind"? Of course, when major outlets like CNN decide not to report on certain atrocities by certain governments just so they can keep a bureau there, and worldwide news agency Reuters refuses to use the word "terrorist" in its reporting in the name of appeasement, we really shouldn't be surprised about the lack of interest in this latest true stifling of the press.

Only sycophantic reporters need apply!

Doesn't the MSM realize that they've become a complete joke? The last time I checked, you weren't supposed to pick and choose the news stories you wanted to report.

Friggin' hippies.

I'd never read that drivel from Robbins - to use an old term, he's a tool.

And Wyatt, the MSM will NEVER see their true role in the world. They are too full of their own sanctimonious crap to ever see things as they really are.
