CPJ: Cuban bloggers growing in strength

Video report

In September, the Committee to Protect Journalists published a special report on Cuban bloggers. Among the highlights of the report:

...a growing number of Cuban bloggers have prevailed over the regime’s tight Internet restrictions to disseminate island news and views online.
At least 25 independent, journalistic, and regularly updated blogs are being produced by Cuban writers, CPJ’s analysis finds. As many as 75 other independent blogs are being maintained, although they are not reportorial or news-based commentary, focusing instead on personal and family interests. In addition, close to 200 officially approved blogs are produced by government journalists, according to the Web site of the official Cuban Journalists Union.
