Cuba criticizes Obama, US media

February 25, 2011 18:36

HAVANA— Cuba is denouncing US President Barack Obama as a copy of his conservative Republican predecessor.

An opinion piece in the official Communist Party newspaper Granma said the US president's statement in support of a Cuban political prisoner who died last year after a hunger strike shows he is being manipulated by Cuban-American exiles, uninformed advisors and a biased US media.

The article was published Friday under a series of altered photos showing the face of former US President George W. Bush gradually turning into that of Obama.
