    106

    PEREZ YOU ARE AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111!!!111!!!

    AMAAAAAAZING!!!!!!!!!!!

    I hope that you will get recognition by major media of the fact that you scooped this story. How much of a bigger more universally recognized "gossip" item could there be than the death of Castro, especially since he has been shrouded in mystery throughout his illness.

    I do know how you do it, but you are a new breed of journalist… and with the mainstream media being so full of yellow journalism and biased corporate bullshit, and independent media so depressing, I have to say it is the best thing to happen to the news to have Perez Hilton writing about things like this and not just Lindsay and Britney.

    AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING

    YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    140

    OMG, Breaking News:

    Breaking News: Former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega can be extradited to France to serve a 10-year sentence for money laundering charges a Federal judge in Miami ruled.

    Keep the real reporting to real reporters. You're ruining any semblance of credibility you may once have established for yourself.

    and i want to know why my message that was in the top 20 got deleted, is it because i mentioned how not even cnn was reporting on it yet?
    this site is really getting bullshit, all the good comments get deleted and the asinine ones stay up
    makes you fucking wonder sometimes

  52. Miami Lexi says – reply to this


    152

    Okay it's after 4, I'm here in Miami and I want to know what's up?! Is it TRUE?

  53. Matt says – reply to this


    153

    Still nothing in the mainstream press - the 4:00 news shows may have been pre-taped or scripted, so they can't easily interrupt them, but once one station goes the rest will follow (assuming this is true, of course - if he's alive and well and CNN reports one of the events of the decade based on celebrity gossip news, that'd be a reputation-breaker)

  54. yee haw says – reply to this


    154

    I dont think its true…because Ive had the news down here on since 4 and theyve only talked about noriega

    156

    U.S. Senior officials said that while there are reports on setbacks in Fidel Castro's health, there are no indications that his death is imminent.

    Nothing unusual has been reported from Havana. However, Miami is ablaze with rumors, NBC News reported.

  57. Angie says – reply to this


    157

    You better not be getting my hopes up for nothing. If you're right, I'm sooo glad I had planned a roadtrip out of Miami this weekend because it's going to be beyond insane. 4:10PM and no one's saying anything perez!!!!

  78. LSUPrincess says – reply to this


    178

    I'm inclined to not believe it. At the very least, the networks would be reporting that the White House was set to make an announcement. They always notify the media so that it will be covered. At least one of two talking heads would be on right speculating as to the topic of the upcoming announcement.

    412pm nothing yet

  80. Barbie says – reply to this


    180

    Look i have channel 7 on & there's no such news about Castro being Dead. Get your story straight because there are just too many of us waiting for that news.

  81. Kate says – reply to this


    181

    Drudge Report says that he is in fact, not dead. Get your facts straight, Perez, and confirm your sources before you start making such huge claims.

  82. MS.P says – reply to this


    182

    R u sure I look all the news website. And they don't have anything.

  84. fbm says – reply to this


    184

    sorry man, but i think someone's yanking your chain, trying to have a laugh. no other news network in the nation has a story about this, and not that i don't love you but i think these "sources"–if they wanted crediblity–would go to a CNN or MSN.

    i think you're being fooled.

  85. kerry says – reply to this


    185

    anything official yet?

  86. Dave says – reply to this


    186

    OK -

    It's 4:15 and there has been no announcement and no other media outlet is reporting this. Are you sure you are getting proper information? I am having a hard time believing you would be able to scoop all the major news outlets on something of this magnitude.

    Skip to next paragraph Reuters

    BRASILIA (Reuters) - Convalescing Cuban leader Fidel Castro "is fine," Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque said on Thursday, responding to recent speculation about the aging revolutionary's health.

    "Fidel is fine and is very disciplined about his recovery," Perez Roque told reporters during a meeting of Latin American and Asian officials in Brazil's capital, Brasilia.
