Video review: Anti-Cuban TV

This program from deep-dish TV looks at the U.S. government's use of TV and radio to broadcast into Cuba subversive, anti-revolution programming. This form of warfare over ideas has been a favorite cold war tactic in use by such agencies like the Voice of America, and more blatant Radio Free Europe, Radio Liberty (now merged with RFE) and Radio Free Asia. Even today, anti-communist programming is still broadcast in Eastern Europe to keep any "threat" from interfering with trade and treaties.
