Party ... like it's 1984

How is this for Orwellian newspeak?

The president of the Cuban Union of Journalists, Tubal Paez, has told a conference of left-wing “media workers” in Caracas that there is “absolute respect” for the personal safety of journalists under the Castro regime.

Mr Paez, whose organisation is supposed to represent journalists but is in fact, nothing but a mouthpiece for the Communist Party, said Cuba was constantly being defamed by the “imperialist” media.

The reality, he said, was very different, adding, without even a hint of embarrassment, that “since the triumph of the Revolution”, no journalist has been attacked, murdered, or gone missing in Cuba “for exercising the profession".
