• MSNBC Invites You to the Happiest Place on Earth … Cuba!

    If you flipped on MSNBC on Friday morning, you might have thought you were watching a paid advertisement from Cuba’s tourism bureau. But it was indeed the so-called “journalists” at the network and its parent company, fawning over Obama’s executive actions that relaxed restrictions on the country.

    From NewsBusters:

    [Kate] Snow’s segment—entitled ‘Bienvenidos a Cuba’ just like a travelogue—had it all: beaches, dancing in the streets, cigars, rum, beer and all those nifty vintage cars potentially available to collectors. So, you ask, what did Snow have to say about the repressive Communist regime that continues to rule Cuba? Nada, naturally. Don’t harsh the Cohiba mellow, compadre!

    The report was patently ridiculous as a form of “news,” but it certainly fulfilled the purpose of delivering a shiny, happy look at a country with massive problems on its hands.

    A whole lot more Americans might want to change their vacation plans,” Snow proclaimed at one point.

    Never before has the mainstream media been so excited about smoking cigars before; health risks be damned! Check out the report above.
