ABSTRACT
The article reports that the magazine "National Geographic," is accused of painting a flattering portrait of Cuba in one of its article by Fred Ward. The article was full of misinformation, omissions and misleading formulations, most of which are the result of the magazine's reporter's willingness to take the word of Cuban officials. The article described Cuba to be poor before the Revolution. Ward wrote in his article about the Cuban Committee for the Defense of the Revolution. The Committee was charged with numerous community functions.
