America is not interested in bringing fair and balanced info to Havana

What’s the problem with this story (via The Cable)?

The U.S. government-sponsored television and radio stations aimed at bringing objective news into communist Cuba aren’t doing the job and need new leadership and direction, according to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

In a new report by the committee’s majority staff, led by John Kerry, D-MA, lawmakers are calling out Radio Marti and TV Marti, both of which are funded by Congress, for a lack of quality programming and for failing to uphold the standards of a free and fair journalistic enterprise.

The aim is to bring “objective news” into Cuba? Please. It’s to replace one form of propaganda (pro-Castro rants) with pro-Washington diatribes.
