This piece was published Sunday in the New York Times’ Sunday Review magazine, and Daily Wire writer Kassy Dillion couldn’t quite believe what she was reading — even for the New York Times, this is really over-the-top. The piece is entitled, “Cuba’s Next Transformation.”
This paragraph in the New York Times is insane. pic.twitter.com/HOq8iMFpE0

It’s not just that Cuba is respected for standing up to “the American behemoth”: “Cuba is also beloved and admired for its international medical assistance program, for its prowess in music and dance, in art and athletics.”
Yeah, didn’t President Obama attend a baseball game there and do the wave with Raul Castro? The players probably would have preferred to defect to the United States if given the chance, but Obama was just visiting and soaking up the culture.

this is arguably one of the worst things the times has printed and all the editors who kept their mouths shut to run it should be deeply ashamed https://t.co/0AdU8EAiDp

Add this to their plucky demeanor: not only are their prisons the envy of the totalitarian world ; their targeted microwave transmissions causing permanent brain damage to its victims are the bomb! In short, NYT paradise!

I've been to Cuba and its "achievements" need to be explained with context.

They also have a majority of the population that is starving while the dictator's family lives a life of luxury taking money from the people. So how about you report on the INJUSTICE because they do NOT deserve that as a people.

RIP the @nytimes. This is extremely sad, but it's something that we see in most of the mainstream media in the western world. Insane in deed

So insane it’s not worth responding to. What has the NYT become? Real need for adult supervision in that newsroom.

I firmly believe, the author of this paragraph is from another dimension, where Cuba isn't a dumpster fire of humanity. That us the only reason to explain this drastic separation from reality.

Jesus, does everyone at the NYT's hate America? Do they see a country intentionally starving its people as "medical assistance"? Do they see a country suppressing the arts as achieving? My God.

All I needed to read was "the United States can no longer claim to being the democratic bastion it once was,". Yeah, okay, I see where you're coming from. Trash. Next.

Find yourself someone who loves you as much as the NYT hates America.

Save this…my God! This is some serious gaslighting at work here.

Someone wrote that, and at least one editor—probably more than one—said “Yeah, this is probably accurate.”

Yes, it’s filed under Opinion, but come on, New York Times, you don’t have to publish everything submitted to you.
