Cuba, the Media, and the Challenge of Impartiality

Abstract

La 4e de couverture indique : "In this concise and detailed work, Salim Lamrani addresses questions of media concentration and corporate bias by examining a perennially controversial topic : Cuba. Lamrani takes as this case study El País, the most widely distribued Spanish daily. El País (a property of Grupo Prisa, the largest Spanish media conglomerate), has editions aimed at Europe, Latin America, and the U.S., making it a global opinion leader. Lamrani wades through a swamp of reporting and uses the paper as an example of how media conglomerates distort and misrepresent life in Cuba and the activities of its government. By focusing on eight key aeras, including human development, internal opposition, and migration, Lamrani shows how the media systematically shapes our understanding of Cuban reality."
