Liberal media hacks praise former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro: ‘Like a folk hero’

As we reported earlier Saturday, former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro died at the age of 90.  Cuban exiles celebrated news of his death, but, Newsbusters said early Saturday morning, liberal media hacks heaped praise on the Communist dictator.

According to Brent Baker:

On MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell insisted in a stock bio that Castro “gave his people better health care and education.” Appearing live by phone, she soon trumpted (sic) how Castro “will be revered” for “education and social services and medical care to all of his people.”

Along a similar theme, in an ABC Special Report during Nightline, Jim Avila maintained that “even Castro’s critics praised his advances in health care and in education.”

In a relatively tough report on Castro’s abuses, CNN’s Martin Savidge, in a pre-recorded bio piece, highlighted how “many saw positives, education and health care for all, racial integration.”

A meandering Brian Williams popped up by phone on MSNBC to ruminate and recalled how in his last visit to Cuba, in 2015: “You see the medicine system they are very proud of.”

ABC’s Avila went so far as to tout how Castro “was considered, even to this day, the George Washington of his country among those who remain in Cuba.”

“George Washington?”  Seriously?

Oh yes.  But it’s even worse than that.

Baker added:

Reminiscing about his high school years, via phone on MSNBC, Chris Matthews asserted that Castro was “a romantic figure when he came into power” and, Matthews wasn’t embarrassed to relay, “we rooted like mad for the guy” who “was almost like a folk hero to most of us.”

That pretty much tells you everything you need to know about the so-called “mainstream media,” known here as the “Democrat-media complex.”
