July 15, 2021 (NewsBusters) – While the liberal media disregarded the spread of COVID during Black Lives Matter protests in the summer of 2020, Reuters admitted on Wednesday that it couldn’t stand watching the people of Cuba protesting against communist oppression and crying out for their freedom. And even though Cuba’s authoritarian regime was rounding up journalists and there were still solidarity protests in South Florida, the broadcast networks were done covering the story.

“Cuban protests risk exacerbating COVID-19 spike,” chided Reuters reporters Aislinn Laing and Vivian Sequera in their headline.

“Protests in Cuba will increase the risk of COVID-19 transmission because of an already high level of cases and the more contagious Delta variant, health officials said on Wednesday,” they added, citing the Pan American Health Organization.

They also noted that besides wearing a mask and washing their hands, the PAHO “urged Cubans and tourists visiting the Caribbean nation to avoid crowds…”

“The gathering of individuals for protests… increases the risk of transmission, in particular in cases such as Cuba where you have active transmission in many areas over the last week…” said one official.

Meanwhile, Cuban-Americans in South Florida (plus other Florida residents) were still out in forces trying to bring attention and help to the people still trapped in Cuba. But despite their cries for aid, ABC, CBS, and NBC were finished with the story and had moved on, preferring to talk about President Biden drumming up support on Capitol Hill for in so-called “human infrastructure” plan.

Fortunately, the Fox News Channel’s Special Report saw the importance in the story and continued to give it airtime.

After noting that “thousands” of people were marching in “a dozen cities” because of “food shortages and chronic poverty,” Fox News correspondent Phil Keating reported: “Extra military and police on the streets have locked down any defiance. Dozens of dissidents have been reportedly arrested. The state confirming one protester died.”

He also showed off a video of a journalist getting arrested at her home during a live hit on a Spanish news program.

One of Capitol Records' female artists, Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, also known by the deliberately-androgynous name "Halsey," is releasing a new album in August whose cover sacrilegiously depicts Frangipane as the Blessed Virgin Mary with one of her breasts exposed. (See the image above - the vulgar part, along with the infant on her knee, has been concealed).

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to defend the honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and demand that Capitol Records scrap this highly offensive cover.

Just a few days' ago, Frangipane showcased the release of this "cover art" in a video made with the help of The Metropolitan Museum of New York, which allowed her to shoot the promotional video on the museum floor.

In the bizarre thirteen minute video, a scantily-clad and obviously pregnant Frangipane is followed around The Met while she stops periodically to gaze at works of sacred art - mostly Baroque depictions of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

By the end of the video, when she introduces her new sacrilegious album cover "artwork," the viewer is left with the distinct impression that this poor soul has a Virgin Mary complex, delusionally identifying herself with the Virgin Mother of God.

Indeed, in a statement made about the idea behind the album cover, Frangipane says that one of the main themes of the new album is: "The dichotomy of the Madonna and the Whore," which, by her statement, she sees in herself.

This kind of personal revelation is disturbing, but Capitol Records cannot allow one person's psychological frailty to scandalize the religious sentiment of those who hold dear the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which asks the CEO of Capitol Records, Jeff Vaughn, to scrap the sacrilegious cover of Ashley Frangipane's (aka "Halsey") new album.

Thank you!

Keating reported on the ineptitude of the Biden administration as they still had yet to finalize a Cuba policy and they were refusing to take in Cuban refugees fleeing communist oppression:

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki: I would also note though that we’ll do that through the prism of what will help the people of Cuba. Not what will help pad the pockets of the regime. And that is a challenging circumstance, given the control of the regime currently on the people.

Keating: U.S. fears of another wave of Cuban refugee migration a la the 1980 Mario boatlift, led the Homeland Security secretary to warn Cubans not to flee, emphasizing they will not be allowed in.

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas: The time is never right to attempt migration by sea. To those who risk their lives doing so, this risk is not worth taking.

“And several South Florida Democrats are now urging President Biden to come right down here to Miami and deliver a pro-democracy and human rights message and to voice support, once again, for the Cuban people,” he added as he wrapped up the segment.

The apparent indifference from the broadcast networks was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from WeatherTech on ABC, Crest on CBS, and GEICO on NBC. Their contact information is linked so you can tell them about the biased news they fund.
