Because it lies about everything.
While over 150 Cuban dissidents were being arrested on International Human Rights Day, here's what the Castro regime had to say.
According to AFP:
[Castro's] Attorney General Dario Delgado asserted that Cuba has no political prisoners, only jailed common criminals who "call themselves dissidents."
"It is sometimes said there are political prisoners here. There aren't," Delgado told the official Communist Party daily Granma.
"The majority of those who call themselves dissidents are common inmates who have been attracted by counter-revolutionary organizations, internal or external, and receive payments directly or indirectly," he said.
"But they aren't prisoners of conscience."
