More Paid Propganda Fuels The Miami Herald Stand Off

We've all seen the wall to wall coverage of the man taking over the Miami Herald office with a fake gun. What's being under reported as far as I've seen is this little nugget.

Also, in a taped telephone interview with WJAN-CA 41 television newsman Juan Manuel Cao, Varela referred to a recent controversy involving a Miami Herald report on Radio and TV Martí, U.S. government broadcasters that aim to end the communist regime of Cuban leader Fidel Castro. The Miami Herald story reported that several journalists, including El Nuevo staffers, had taken pay from the broadcasters .

It sparked an outcry in the Cuban exile community -- and dominated discussion on Miami's Spanish-language radio talk shows. Fiedler referred to radio critics of the report as ''Chihuahuas'' nipping at the newspaper's heels. He later apologized for the remark.

Exactly what pushed Varela over the edge Friday was unclear.

More paid propaganda hitting our airwaves. It's just getting worse. And---what's up with such a low bail to get him released?
