From today's New York Times article, US Turns Off News Billboard Atop Its Mission in Havana:

"Taking down the billboard has permitted both sides to act like mature adults," said Robert A. Pastor, a professor of international relations at American University. "That's the most hopeful thing we've seen."

But not everyone viewed it that way. "The only people that are happy about having the news ticker turned off are the Castro brothers," said Mauricio Claver-Carone, director of the U.S.-Cuba Democracy PAC in Washington.
