Dissident Blogger Launches Cuba's First Independent Online Newspaper

Yoani Sanchez launched Cuba's first independent online newspaper on
Wednesday with reports questioning the quality of Cuba's healthcare
system but access to its maiden edition was soon redirected to another
site mocking the journalist.
The new site
14ymedio.com seeks to draw attention away from the communist-ruled
country's state-controlled media and challenge the government's heavy
media restrictions. Cuba
has been tolerating a greater criticism in recent years but not yet
from such a professional-looking website produced on the island.
