Castro's Too Repressive for Al Jazeera

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 dissident blogger 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.
