ABOUT MARK TAPSON

From the text:

The American mainstream media, which helped make Castro a worldwide star, still betray their hero-worship for him in headlines like this one from The New York Times, accompanied by a glamour shot of Fidel gazing off into the bright and glorious revolutionary future*: "Fidel Castro, Cuban Revolutionary Who Defied U.S., Dies at 90." The article describes him as the "the fiery apostle of revolution" who "bedevil[ed] 11 American presidents," which makes him sound like a roguish hero of anti-colonialism.
 
Speaking of which, Al Jazeera's headline reads "Fidel Castro's anti-colonialist legacy" and notes approvingly that "[t]he Cuban leader was an energetic sponsor of socialist movements throughout Latin America and Africa." An energetic sponsor apparently is Al Jazeera's euphemism for torturing, murdering tyrant.
 
The UK Guardian posted such articles as "‘He led a humble life’: Fidel Castro’s biographer on the legacy of a revolutionary" and "'A revolution is not a bed of roses': Fidel Castro in his own words." Indeed it was not a bed of roses for the victims of Castro's black-hearted brutality.
