Castro's Too Repressive for Al Jazeera

at 12:01 AM Wednesday, June 20, 2012

The Al Jazeera television network has closed its Havana bureau.

According to Diario de Cuba, the network has grown tired of dealing with

the Castro regime, which constantly sought to disrupt its reporting.

Earlier this year, Al Jazeera's Havana correspondent Moutaz Al Qaissia

was chastised and threatened by the Cuban authorities pursuant to a

story about Yoani Sanchez.

Things must be pretty bad in Havana when even Al Jazeera can't tolerate

the censorship and repression of the Castro regime, as it's used to

dealing with unsavory tyrants.

Also, makes you wonder just how much the remaining news bureaus in

Havana are willing to put up with or acquiesce to.
