Special Report: "Fidel Castro's Media Flatterers"

    In the wake of news today that an ailing Fidel Castro will resign 
after nearly five decades as Cuba's communist dictator, the MRC has 
moved to our home page a Special Report with many examples of the 
media's promotional coverage over the years.

    In his 49 years as dictator, Fidel Castro never allowed free 
elections and dealt brutally with Cubans who dared oppose him -- 
execution, imprisonment or exile. Yet liberals in the U.S. media 
remained enchanted with Castro and his communist revolution, treating 
the dictator more as a charming celebrity than an oppressive tyrant. 
The Media Research Center has compiled some of the choicest examples 
of the liberal media's infatuation with Castro from the last 20 
years, many accompanied by video and audio clips.

    For "Fidel's Flatterers: The U.S. Media's Decades of Cheering 
Castro's Communism," compiled last year by the MRC's Rich Noyes, go 

    The sub-headings you'll find:

# Field Trips to Fidel's Island "Paradise"

# CNN's Havana Bureau: "Megaphone for a Dictator"
# Elian Gonzalez, Back to the "Peaceable" Paradise
# Touting Fidel and Cuba's Communist Revolution

CTRL is a discussion & informational exchange list. Proselytizing propagandic
screeds are unwelcomed. Substance—not soap-boxing—please!   These are
sordid matters and 'conspiracy theory'—with its many half-truths, mis-
directions and outright frauds—is used politically by different groups with
major and minor effects spread throughout the spectrum of time and thought.
That being said, CTRLgives no endorsement to the validity of posts, and
always suggests to readers; be wary of what you read. CTRL gives no
credence to Holocaust denial and nazi's need not apply.

Let us please be civil and as always, Caveat Lector.
