Interesting Article

In this article, López Göttig notes the reigning hipocrisy in Fidel Castro's newsragg Granma. This hardly comes as news: In order to survive its lack of coherence, this regime has usually turned to censorship, missinformation and persecution.

The interesting thing about the article, though, is that it notes that Fidel's regime has become so anachronistic that its points of reference are now other dictatorships that once were considered antagonistic. The case in point is Iran.

If you want, you can complement the read with this report (pdf file) on free press indicators for Latin America. Any guesses as to which country is the only one in the region that prohibits this freedom by law?
