Abstract: For more than 50 years, Cuba has been one of the most maligned countries in the western press. As the island‘s political system grappled with its limitations and shortcomings, as all countries do, mainstream press coverage demonized the island, despite no tangible military threat to the US today. The media continues to justify an obscene economic and political embargo, appeasing a heavily influential right-wing political lobby. In some ways, the geopolitical tensions faced by Cuba‘s people are not unlike those of Palestinians struggling for economic self-sufficiency and an unalienable right to a homeland.
