Cuba takes its battle to the blogosphere

Cuba is counter-attacking its cyber-foes with government backers calling them mercenaries and CIA agents, but sometimes admitting it's difficult to fight Internet critics like well-known blogger Yoani Sanchez. Half-a-dozen posts referring to a "media war" and the need to "man the trenches" in "defense of the revolution" have popped up on pro-government blog sites in the past three weeks. The posts also left no doubt that all of the 15 or so other bloggers who regularly criticize the Cuban government are viewed as dangerous subversives.
