News Roundup

  • Apparently it is a horrible thing for people living under a Communist regime to ever hear live music. This is why a bunch of people smashed Juanes CDs (or if you watched the news footage closely, quite a few homemade copies of Juanes CDs) on Calle Ocho yesterday. [NBCMiamiHeraldNYTimes]
  • Locals have been wondering it for a while, but now the New York Times is trying to piece together how the Florida Marlins got such a good deal on the stadium during such a crappy economic time. [NYTimes]
  • The Miami Hurricanes shot up the AP Poll to number nine, just ahead of the next two opponents: Virginia Tech and Oklahoma. [Herald]
  • Among the cuts Mayor Manny Diaz has in mind for balancing the budget: closing NET offices, the film office, and the nonprofit trust that runs Virginia Key Beach. [Herald]
  • A Miami activist is taking on CNN's resident windbag Lou Dobbs. [Herald]
  • The Emmys were last night. Which was the locally relevant nominated show? Right, Dexter. It didn't win anything. Not that it matters, because Jon Cryer won best supporting actor in a comedy for Two and Half Men,  which is simply not a funny show and makes the Emmys null and void. (And how about that cardigan?)

Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
