Dictatorial countries require people to show up as mourners. It is their way of showing how great their dead dictator was.

The same will happen when Chavez dies, when Castro dies, etc.

CBS is outright lying. They are LYING to the American People that this man was loved, and that what is being seen is true, sincere grief. They are not reporting that North Korea is 80% phony show, and this is no different. They are not reporting that actresses are being put into Army uniforms, put to the front of the lines along the roads, then cry and are filmed, while a representative spokesperson for them sobs before the camera. And that others who are not acting professionals are told in no uncertain terms they MUST CRY and do so vigorously, or they will be punished by their local Party units, with possibly severe reprecussions. The fact they are witholding this fundamental information in fact of what the true situation is in Pyongyang means they are violating fundamental rules of reporting and journalism. I am not surprised, but I am disgusted with them. All over Asia over here (except China), the reporting is matter of fact that this is all just another big North Korean staged show...because, regarding the journalists and outlets out here: a) they pay attention, b) they have seen it before, c) they do not have a domestic agenda to brainwash their viewership into accepting communist regimes. Truly the US now smacks of the worst days of USSR controlled propaganda. Go outside the US media zone, people, to get the TRUTH, that is all I can say. CNN was horrid and lying through their teeth, giving no context at all to today. They said the people were grieving and nary a commentator noted what North Korean defectors and North Korean watchers, skilled in YEARS of it, are saying all over South Korean and Japanese TV about this phenomenon during the funeral in Pyongyang.

Reports coming in from several different locations and reports (more than one report), according to source multiple reports, though all could be fool’s game according to source. Still monitoring.

I remember Radio Albania, and also the familiar faux-Midwestern news anchor voices at Radio Moscow, pitching the latest agriculture report, telling of America’s latest setback in Vietnam, or introducing the evening Jazz program. But back in the good old days of the Cold War, there was nothing quite like Radio Tirana: it was like taking a graduate class in Propaganda 101. I suspect Obama has the old air check tapes in a drawer somewhere.

Fidel Castro Dead According to Unconfirmed Report

According to several different radio and news reports, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro is dead. However, Pundit Press has not been able to independently verify these reports.

With Castro's advanced age, it is not out of the realm of possibilities that he has died. Yet, with exuberance over the death of Kim Jong Il, it is possible that reports of Castro's death could have been made up.

We will continue to monitor the situation.

It’ll be an idiot quintfecta this year if Fidel goes too.

Strange how this year is shaping up. All the old time tyrants and terrible leaders are dropping this year, including maybe Putin.

Strange.

I don’t know if anyone posted anything on this yet—I didn’t check all the posts. But “El Día de los Santos Inocentes” (today, Dec 28th) apparently is the Latin equivalent of our April Fool’s Day.

“The 28th of December is “Innocents’ Day” [in Spanish “El Día de los Santos Inocentes”], similar in spirit to the American April Fools’ Day. On this day, people play “inocentadas” (pranks or practical jokes) on friends and relatives: people make jokes hoping that the victim believes the false thing. When people get caught, the joker says: “Inocente, inocente!” (”Innocent, innocent!”). The newspapers and other media are in on the joke as well, reporting false news for the people to figure out. ...”

La Prensa de Cuba, Granma, Radio Habana, all nada.

Probably false alarm.

Also, informed sources in Miami will know long before it is officially announced.

I’ll believe it when Dr. McCoy grips his wrist, peers at the tricorder, and looks up with that serious look on his face, “He’s dead, Jim.”

There apparently have been several reports of Castro’s death in recent years. Nothing has been confirmed.

My father gave me a cigarette sized shortwave radio for Christmas and I was tuning around and heard Radio Habana Cuba. I got a big kick about their description of the Isle of Youth how it was renamed from the Isle of Pines. They said it was discovered by Christopher Columbus but they backtracked to the PC story of where the Indians were there first so Columbus did not really discover it. I just busted out laughing and shook my head on how they tiptoe the PC line. I keep firing up one of several SW radios I have to see if Castro is still here or went to his final reward.

I made an Obama version of this somewhere. BTW, heard Radio Habana Cuba many times. They were even on the AM band for a while and sometimes they would “walk over” WTAM (then WWWE) on 1100 kc in Cleveland (I’m near Pittsburgh). Every once in a while when I cannot pick up “Coast to Coast AM” on 104.7 FM (Quinn and Rose’s flagship station), I go to 570, WKBN out of Youngstown, OH and I hear “Radio Reloj” (Radio Clock, like Cuba’s version of CNN that broadcasts “RR” in CW (.-. .-.) in the background. In winter, sometimes they would “walk over” WKBN.
