Twin Column Disaster

Miami Herald writer Liz Balmaseda stumbles, only partly recovers

Fernandez now strongly attacks Balmaseda, accusing her of "anti-Cuban tendencies" and "incompetence."

"There is no worse war than a Cuban against a Cuban," he threatens from his office, surrounded by the videos he copies and sells. On his neck he wears a gold chain that reads "Super Dad."

Fernandez has received more free publicity from the controversy than he could ever have imagined. And it's not over yet. He claims to have a "gotcha" of his own, which also promises to keep the story alive and his name in the media. He swears that the siblings "of the dead" are going to come to Miami to hold a press conference sometime this week to "clean" his name. One local cable TV station, WJAN-TV, has even promised to dedicate an hour to the story, according to Fernandez. But the wily self-promoter will stage the event in a place accessible to all the local Spanish-language television stations, so he "doesn't play favorites."

"Once [corroborators] come and give their press conference, where will [Balmaseda] stick her head?" he asks smugly.
