24 Hours of News / Regina Coyula

24 Hours of News / Regina Coyula
Regina Coyula, Translator: Unstated

It's excellent news that we will soon have a 24-hour news channel.
Positive at first sight, but for me, so disenchanted with the
information policy of my country (as a consequence of the political
policy), the existence of of 24 hours of uninterrupted news transmission
is beyond my imagination.

We have the 2-hour morning news, one-hour midday news, the prime time of
30 minutes and a bulletin at midnight. Ah! And the Roundtable. That, not
to mention the paper press and the radio stations, one of which was
originally meant to be a 24 hour news station.

Despite so much supposed information, we are the most disinformed people
in the world. Most of the time the transmission of "information" covers
the achievements in urban , the anti-mosquito campaign, the
doctors in Haiti, , Nicaragua and , and the imminent
collapse of capitalism and the global campaign for the release of the
"five heroes."

Here in the I have said enough on the subject, because it's
exhausting to hear that we are the most educated people in the world,
and with respect to the news they treat is as if we were feeble-minded.
I watch "The Best of Telesur" which is aired here a day late and hell,
they offer news, on this program I find — with the delay, the point of
view — that there are a ton of things that happen in the world and they
don't exist in the numerous Cuban news outlets.

A work by Guillermo Rodríguez Rivera takes this on, originally published
in the Catholic magazine Lay Space and then reproduced in numerous media
about the theme of the press. Aside from the profession of faith that he
makes to say what he says, I would subscribe to his point of view. It
strikes me that although the country's leadership has called on the
press to play a more active role, the press hasn't moved a single
millimeter, including the directors of the organs that continue the same
as always. Is it that in the press they also confirm those responsible
for the mistake without renouncing or removing them?
