Excerpts from UN and OCHA pages: http://www.reliefweb.int/ocha_ol/civilians/the_media/index.html THE MEDIA The misuse of information can have deadly consequences in armed conflicts, just as information correctly employed can save lives. If the first casualty of war is the truth, the next victims are those who are unable to draw attention to their need for protection.

"As human beings, we cannot be neutral, or at least have no right to be, when other human beings are suffering. Each of us...must do what he or she can to help those in need, even though it would be much safer and more comfortable to do nothing." - Kofi Annan UN Secretary-General

Why does CNN allow this reporter to conceal the pressing news? It is high time for CNN to come clean about Cuba. If Newman is too compromised, replace her with an honest reporter, someone with integrity. A change of individuals in Havana would help repair her colleagues' reputation, soiled by Newman.

Apparently CNN isn't opposed to communism.
