The article Louis is discussing while bitchy isn't 
100% false. Completely omitted from consideration,
however, is the effect of 44 years of blockade by
the United States. This blockade doesn't encourage
a wide-open, free-wheeling spirit of dialogue and
debate, such as the one we see every day in the 
media of the United States, to give an example...

The comment about George Orwell is doubly ironic
since the Cuban media has expressed a surprisingly
positive attitude toward the noted British critic
of totalitarianism. Read a Cuban comment on Orwell:
