Recognizing Journalistic Integrity in Cuba

Wednesday, August 19, 2015
We never hesitate to criticize journalists for willfully failing to cover Cuba's realities.

This is specially the case of foreign news bureaus in Havana, which are constantly self-censoring themselves -- for fear of being booted out of the island by the Castro regime.

Meanwhile, visiting foreign journalists easily fall prey to disinformation.

Thus, it's important to recognize journalists when they courageously report beyond the fluff.

During U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's visit to Havana, two journalists provided balanced coverage that showed Cuba's repressive political and economic realities.

They are CNN's Jake Tapper and CNBC's Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.
