Journalist with Cuban Official Daily Defects to U.S.

MIAMI – The erstwhile foreign editor for Cuban Communist Party daily Granma defected to the United States and is now in Miami.

Aida Calviac Mora, 29, appeared Thursday night on Miami-based America TeVe television.

In an interview with “El Espejo” host Juan Manuel Cao, she blasted Cuban official media and vented her frustration at never being allowed to come up with her own news coverage on “different, critical subjects.”

Recent photos on her Facebook profile show Calviac in Mexico, where she went for professional reasons, Web site Cafe Fuerte said.

The Cuban journalist apparently arrived in Miami in late November after entering the United States from Mexico, the Web site said.

Calviac said that media directors on the island undermine all attempts to practice independent journalism with the argument that “it’s not a good idea, because the enemy can use it against you.”

This “fortress mentality” blocks any professional reporting, which always runs into a wall of official secrecy and self-censorship, she said.

Calviac said that Granma has the same arbitrary nature and failures the whole country suffers: verticalism and ordering you around.”
