It sure looks that way after finding out, via The Natural Truth, the “news” agency sent its on-air staffers an e-mail yesterday with the following talking points on the “Castro resigns” story (my comments in parentheses):
-Please note Fidel did bring social reforms to Cuba â€“ namely free education (you mean indoctrination) and universal(ly awful) health care, and racial integration (yep, now EVERYBODY gets treated like a slave, regardless of skin color).
-Some analysts would say the US embargo was a benefit to Castro politically â€“ something to blame problems on (Castro never missed an opportunity to blame the US for Cuba’s problems, nor did CNN), by what the Cubans call â€œthe imperialist,â€ meddling in their affairs.
-While despised by some (Some? Try millions!), he is seen as a revolutionary hero, especially with leftist in (the CNN newsroom) Latin America, for standing up to the United States.
Yep, brought to you by the network that spiked stories about Saddam Hussein’s atrocities.
