    The majority of content on Radio Marti is propaganda that is influenced by the Cuban American’s who live in Miami. It’s station with one purpose to blast Castro. Also it only pushes the view of the right-wing community in Miami. People in Cuba are smart enough to already know this.

    TV Marti is even a funnier venture. The TV station seen by no one. There is only one place to see TV Marti in Cuba. And thats in the lobby of the US Interest Section in Havana.

    Both radio and television services of Marti should be closed. It would save the US government millions.
