Things you won't read about in the Washington Post
While the Washington Post publishes unsubstatiated tittle tattle from disgruntled emigres who have nothing but hearsay evidence, news comes from Cuba of something worth reporting. The Western media is keen to keep the non-story of the death of the Cuban dissident Oswaldo Paya alive by giving scurrilous credibility to weird ideas that he was killed by the Cuban state, but meanwhile Cuba keeps on doing the truly amazing. Get this: According to the Cuban News Agency with the recent graduation of 8,000 Ethiopian doctors, Cuba has now educated more than 40,000 African health professionals from its Latin American Medical School (pictured) and is working to improve the lives and health of poor communities in 51 out of 54 African countries. That's news, but you won't read about it in the Washington Post.
