  • Cuba's media: Revolution, resistance and transition - The Listening Post (Feature)

    Cuba is a notoriously difficult place to get accreditation - let alone talk to journalists. Most of the media on the island are state run. It has been that way ever since the revolution in 1959, when Fidel Castro overthrew the US-backed Batista government with a socialist one that is still in place. Many dismiss the media in Cuba as mere relics of its Cold War past - Soviet-style propaganda machines designed to control the masses. But now there is a diplomatic transition underway - a rapprochement with the US aimed at ending decades of animosity between the two countries. As the relationship with Washington changes, Cuban media outlets like Granma, Huventud Rebelde, Radio Havana - will undoubtedly change too. There has already been some reform - an opening up - of Cuban media: accredit...

  • Cuba: media blind spots, tunnel visions and cliches - The Listening Post (Feature)

    President Barack Obama's visit to Cuba last week, the first by a US president in almost 90 years, is the latest step in a gradual diplomatic thaw between the two countries. The visit, so rich in symbolic value, got a lot of play in the US media. But for many Cubans, the tone and the framing of the coverage revealed cliches that said more about the American media's own preconceptions about Cuba than it said about the story. Cuba's own state media coverage - and the state controls every major news outlet on the island - was suspicious both of the US and of domestic voices calling for reform. So it, too, played to type. For close to a century, the US embargo on Cuba has entailed a lot more than travel restrictions. With the media narrative almost entirely managed by the US, and national C...
