Cuba Dissidents Arrested, Released

The MSM must have a hard time with stories like this.

A communist dictator arrests about 35 pro-US dissidents before their planned meeting. That's news. But wait! The gracious and merciful communist dictator releases most of those arrested shortly thereafter. Not news anymore. Why? Geography?

In other words, would the MSM deem this news if it happened in the United States?

Interestingly, the article author devotes a couple paragraphs to the arrests, then spends the remainder of the article presenting the dictator's generous reforms.

The Communist Country is Cuba. The dictator, Raul Castro. The pro-US group of dissidents, Agenda. The article is from the AFP, the only MSM outlet to report this story.
