This is one of those "you got to see it to believe it" moments. As you watch this, continue to remind yourself that this is NOT communist Cuban television, it is Nickelodeon. Ya know, Spongebob Squarepants--the channel most American children watch daily. During the 20-minute "news" program by Linda Ellerbee, there is nothing even leaning towards a negative portrayal of the Cuban N. Korea-soft-like gulag state. There is no mention of Cubans fleeing the country on hand-crafted floating contraptions derived from 50s-model automobiles in shark-infested waters. They never answer or even ask the "why" question: Why no internet? Why no visas to leave the country? Why no economy? Why no tourists? HOW is this "freedom, liberty, and tranquility," as they repeatedly label Cuba throughout the 20-minute program? There appears to be a bit of an accident when one of the Cuban teens describes things he wished he had access to such as the internet to study music and history, but he quickly reels it in when he states that it would be "damaging" to be in front of a computer all day. Again, see it to believe it [click here to view on Nick News]:
