The fur is flying in South Florida this week, what with the Foley scandal and revelations about his personal life that the papers chose to keep private up til now.

And, of course, the continuing fallout at the Miami Herald over the Radio Marti/El Nuevo Herald story and the comments by Herald editor Tom Fiedler the other day. Fiedler has published an apology.

The Cuban-American bloggers, of course, don't buy it. Babalu blog is particularly heated, including this comment by George Moneo (thanks to Alex for correcting my confusion with another Babalu contributor, Henry 'Conductor' Gomez, who writes the Herald Watch blog...apologies):
The Miami Herald has a long and dirty history of slapping the face of the Cuban-American community in South Florida. Beginning with Jack Kofoed, and continuing with race-baiters Leonard PItts and Carl Hiassen, and the other other exemplary bigots who write for your newspaper.

'Race baiters'? Oh my.

Babalu is encouraging protests in writing to Fiedler and to the McClatchy (owner of the Herald) corporate HQ. They're continuing to call for Fiedler's resignation.


  • Liz, you got two people confused. George Moneo, the author of the post, is not Henry Gomez, "Conductor" who is the writer of Herald Watch. They both contribute to Babalu, hence the confusion.

  • And the Miami blogisphere suspects that they are both closeted homosexuals...

    Not my opinion, that is just the word on the street...

  • Whats to moderate? Henry, there is nothing wrong about being a gay republican. It is just the word on the street.

    Besides, you are not denying it anyways.

    Jeesh, one comes out, and all hell breaks loose.
