Zone of Reality: Castro Notes

By Rich Kozlovich

Humberto Fontova(Link to his official website)was born in 1954 in Cuba. He is an author, blogger, conservative political commentator and an ardent anti-communist; which demonstrates a high level of sanity and intelligence. Castro's press agency, Cubadebate, has this to say about him. "Fontova's books shamelessly libel our Revolution's founders! The terms "scoundrel" and "traitor" should precede every mention of Humberto Fontova!" Another good reason to read his works.

Fontova’s works strive to correct all the misinformation about Castro and the Cuba he destroyed. He especially shows his contempt for Che, who was a sadistic murderer and adored by the young left and the left media.

In 1961 when Fontova was seven his family managed to leave Cuba for New Orleans. His father had been held captive for three months after the Revolution and a cousin died while in a Cuban state prison from a “heart attack”. In Cuban prisons “heart attack” is most likely a euphemism for murder.

This is the second in a weekly series that I will be linking. Please enjoy Fontova’s special brand of writing. He is exciting, but most importantly he is bringing out that which has been hidden by the Main Stream Media for over 50 years.

I am making one change. I have my own archive of his works, but as I searched through the internet I just didn’t realize how many articles he has written on this subject that I missed. I will be linking more than one article a week as a result.

Please enjoy the enlightenment.

Today’s post deals with Don Hewitt right after his death. As the rest of the world was praising him Fontova has this to say;

CBS's Don Hewitt — Fidel Castro Enabler

Half a century after his media advance-work helping install a Stalinist regime in Cuba the legendary Don Hewitt of CBS still seemed proud of his work as a Castro media auxiliary. During that interim, over 20,000 Cubans were murdered by firing squad and beaten or starved to death in forced labor camps. Another 70—80 thousand were ripped apart by sharks or drowned in the Florida straits (attempting to flee a nation that previously took in more immigrants per-capita than the U.S.)

If Mr. Hewitt had uttered a single word of remorse regarding this bloodbath, I'd find him easier to praise than to bury.

Shortly after Herbert Matthews of the New York Times made Fidel Castro an international pop star on the front page of the (at the time) world's most important newspaper, CBS horned in on the act. The February 1957 NYT's headline article proclaimed that, "Fidel Castro has strong ideas of liberty, democracy, social justice, the need to restore Cuba's Constitution....this amounts to a new deal for Cuba, radical, democratic and therefore anti-Communist."
