Cuba: CNN Admits Flags Not Intended to Block Messages
Finally a news organization took on the issue I've been harping about. In a piece by Lucia Newman on CNN Video 2/7/06, she wraps up her report by saying:
"There had been wide speculation that Castro's so-called the surprise project was in fact intended to completely block the US messages. But while the flag park is impressive, it is now clear that the flag park is intended to be more of a symbol than a black out."
I guess someone actually in Havana can tell these things. Still Reuters, the BBC, LA Times, and even CNN (16 hours ago) lead their stories with the blocking angle!
