#5077: Haiti Progres (fwd)

From: Joel Dreyfuss <jdreyfuss@msn.com>

    I can't help but be fascinated at the fact that Haiti Progres has
resorted to Haitian history at a time when there is so much turmoil and real
news to report from Haiti. Instead of analyses of the debate over the
legitimacy of the election and the growing isolation of the Aristide-Preval
regime, we get a recap of The Black Jacobins.

I've always valued Haiti Progres's reports, because even though hopelessly
biased, their tendencies are out in the open and you can adjust for windage
while reading.

I learned long ago that whenever Haitian newspapers resorted to history, it
meant they were afraid to talk about reality. It seems that even our friends
at Progres have run out of things to say in defense of the rigged election.
What's next, the life of Toussaint L'Ouverture?
