NB: “…breaking news coverage emphasized that reality, journalists on ABC, CNN and MSNBC – matching how too much of the media approached Castro for decades – couldn’t resist crediting him for supposed great advancements in education, literacy and health care.”
“On MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell insisted in a stock bio that Castro “gave his people better health care and education.” Appearing live by phone, she soon trumpted how Castro “will be revered” for “education and social services and medical care to all of his people.”
Along a similar theme, in an ABC Special Report during Nightline, Jim Avila maintained that “even Castro’s critics praised his advances in health care and in education.””
How is it different with Obama? News media frontpages paid protesters, who did not vote, every day carrying signs demanding no changes in ObamaCare or education.
Ronald Reagan is still portrayed as the guy who stole food from people in the streets. Who knows what the hell he did but we have news media making certain everyone knows what a great guy Castro was and how much Trump elect will reverse what Obama accomplished.
