Back in 2005, Charles Johnson noted:
In a 1999 lecture at the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University, former CNN Chief News Executive Eason Jordan told the audience that CNN International was directly inspired by Fidel Castro.
As Charles rhetorically wrote at the time, “I wonder what could have attracted Fidel Castro so strongly to CNN?”
Today, Fausta Wertz writes that CNN en Español doesn’t fall far from the tree in its choice of Caribbean-based Marxist stooges to pony up to. But then, between Castro, Saddam, Kim Jong Il and his “thin” subjects, and now Hugo Chavez, the various branches of CNN have never met a leftwing dictator they haven’t admired.
