  • 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.

There has already been some reform - an opening up - of Cuban media: accreditation and access are easier to get, officials are more open to talking, although there are still plenty of red lines journalists there know better than to cross. The Listening Post's Marcela Pizarro reports from Havana on the media landscape, the changes taking place and what is all means for journalism in Cuba.
