The mainstream media completely ignored an attack on U.S. diplomats in Cuba, because, well, ‘Russia!’
There was bizarre news out of the U.S. State Department on Wednesday as the Associated Press reported that U.S. diplomats had to return home from Cuba after experiencing “physical symptoms,” which included “potentially permanent hearing loss.” The mysterious incidents led to the United States expelling two Cuba officials from their Washington, D.C. embassy. Despite the stunning revelations, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) gave the story zero time later that evening.
Meanwhile, on Fox News Channel’s Special Report, Anchor Bret Baier delivered a news brief on the developing story. “The AP says Cuba may have placed sonic devices that produce non-audible sound inside or outside the residences of several embassy staffers with the intent of deafening them,” he reported. “The Americans eventually came home.”
As reported by the AP, State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert told the press that the first of the incidents dated back to the fall of 2016, during the Obama administration. “She would not say what the symptoms were except that they were not life-threatening,” the AP added. Nauert would not go into detail about what had occurred, but FBI and Diplomatic Security Service investigators were looking into the matter.
