Did you read what Granma had to say about Castro's illness?
Did you read the official government response to allegations that Castro is "gravely" ill and has been unsuccessfully operated on at least three times?
No, of course not.
While all this was going on Cuban reporters were being taught how to be "up to the great transformations and needs of the Revolution. The people must see its problems reflected in our media with greater frequency."
Now, what event in the life of Juan Q. Cuban is more a problem than the health of the man who's every whim has been the law for 48 long years?
They can't report. They don't know anything. They're mushroom propagandists. They're kept in the dark and fed crap and rumor has it that there's a fresh supply of that in Havana these days and newspapers that are only good for wiping it off.
