Discovery Network Duped

Discovery Network Duped

Are they complicit or just lazy? I suppose you would have to examine each media outlet on a case by case basis. But why did the Discovery Network last week broadcast a program on Cuba that asserted among other falsehoods that, Cuba has free health care widely available for all Cubans and also that Cubans own their homes? Ethical reporting demands that you check sources yet the Discovery Network obviously took the Cuban government's propaganda verbatim. Maybe they were just duped? Maybe they are co-conspirators with the Castro boys? Either way their credibility with me plunged off the radar. If they wanted to get their credibility back they have to get one of their reporters to dress up like a tourist and go into Cuba. Leave the tourist resorts immediately and go among the people. Ask everyone where this all inclusive free health care can be found. Ask them if they own their own house and can prove it by being able to sell it or remain in it if Castro become cross with them. Goebbels said that if you tell a big enough lie often enough it becomes the turth. The true problem is that these elitist media snobs think they already know the truth and won't even go here to see another perspective.
