    Hurray! this is the best news. As a Cuban-American born in Cuba, my family was fortunate to leave Castro's regime in the late 60's. I thank my parents everyday for working so hard to give my sisters and I a better life. Let's hope Castro's death will free Cuba from the communist regime that's poisining the Cubans still left there….let Cuba be free!

    Here in Miami, people are going nuts. Broward county police are being called in. The coast Guard has also staked out the eastern coast of Miami as well as monitoring Cuba. The FBI is also on alert, I would there is something is going on especially if the FBI is on high alert.

    410

    ok so, I live here in Miami and there is a lot of buzz here around the office. We are ready to go out to calle 8 tonight should there be a party tonight.

    What I've been told is this…my co workers fiance informed her that the hialeah police department was getting ready for the crowds

    Another co-worker got in contact w/ a relative in Cuba that mentioned to her that the schools in Cuba today were closed.

    I personally won't believe it until I see it…one thing is for sure…Miami will party hard!!!

  11. Bex says – reply to this


    411

    Perez, I think you should remove all references to this "news" until the announcement has been made - whether that's later today or 3 months from now. Everyone is just getting riled up. Your bread and butter is celebrity gossip, not world exclusive breaking news. It's OK to stick to the bread and butter! For your credibility and our respect sake, take these down!

  12. Come on People says – reply to this

    People, give it some time…….you are all pretty fast to jump down his throat……

  13. marie says – reply to this


    413

    wow, it's kind of AMAZING how comments just seem to disappear on here. im sure it has nothing to do with someone being ashamed that people are calling him on his shit, right?

  14. ereport says – reply to this


    414

    sources in Miami are saying the press announcement is for Manuel Noriega, NOT Fidel. Just spoke to reports who are preparing a story right now about the rumon just ran

  15. erika says – reply to this


    415

    Not believable now - no chance that the media would ever take rush hour into consideration. Thats not the way things work.

  16. Perezh8r says – reply to this


    416

    you are such a moron. I hope it's true, but there aren't any credible news websites reporting any kind special reports or anything. GREEN HAIRED MORON!

  17. The Drunken Russian says – reply to this


    417

    My russian sources who have close contacts with cubans are saying he is DUNZO, DEAD, GONNER!! Perez is on the ball with this one.

  18. Tiffany says – reply to this


    418

    Most of the people I know who have been to Cuba actually were suprised at how "okay" the Cubans living in Cuba were. They expected them to at least look unhappy even if they couldn't complain. A friend of mine who works for a paper uses his press pass to go in and out on "trips" and said that he was surprised at how everyone seemed to have enough and no one was 'desperate' like they are in this country. He's not a communist, so it wasn't his lefty leanings coming through. He just said that he thinks we have a different impression of Cuba because of the Cubans living here.

    420

    Perez, you better not be making this up… and are you sure these "sources" aren't just leading you on?

  21. Don't panic says – reply to this


    421

    Geez people, calm down about it being past 4:00 and accusing Perez of being wrong. Press conferences are nearly *always* late, even by as much as an hour or hour and a half. It's obvious you panicky ones don't watch the news much.

  22. BACKSTREET BOY says – reply to this


    422

    COME ON PEREZ ADMIT IT YOU GOT FOOLED……JUST TELL US THE TRUTH…HOW DID YOU FIND THIS OUT??????!!!!!!!! lET US KNOW IF THIS IS TRUE. WE NEED TO KNOW PLEASE IS THIS TRUE OR NOT????!!!!!!!!!!

  23. COCO says – reply to this


    423

    For 50 years this bastard keep the island of Cuba like a prison.
    He was never elected president, but since 1959, he was the only man who run the country.

    In the name of all my people: MUERETE HIJO DE LA GRAN PUTA. BURN IN HELL!

  24. Bob says – reply to this


    424

    wow you are full of shit, announcements like this aren't delayed because of traffic, thats just retarded

  25. Judy says – reply to this


    425

    No one but a Miami tv station is reporting and the tv station says it believes it is untrue.

  26. NawtQbn says – reply to this


    426

    This sounds like bullshit! I wouldn't think CNN gives a shit about Miami rush hour and would have announced this, if true, already!!!

  27. UGH... says – reply to this


    427

    SERIOUSLY???

  28. Viva Fidel says – reply to this


    428

    You fucking jizz-doodling fool, there can only be an OFFICIAL announcement on Castro's health from the Cuban government! US officials are NOT going to call a press conference to break the announcement of the death of a foreign head of state, not even of Fidel.

  29. Jenn says – reply to this


    429

    Dude this is like real honest to goodness news. Wow! Impressive. Go you and your scooping self. Keep this up and you'll be an anchor on CNN.

    Fuck Perez - this shit messes with peoples' lives. If this is not true, how dare you post such nonsense! You will have lost any ounce of credibility you might have had.

  37. traffichater says – reply to this


    437

    To all those Cubans in Miami, please be mindful that all those other people who live in Miami and are not Cuban would like to get home after a long days work!!! So party later!!!

  38. PFFFFFT!! says – reply to this


    438

    Okay, I can understand Miami but I can't understand every OTHER Country in the world not reporting on this just because its Rush Hour in Miami. Gimmie a break. I've never once heard a news story being delayed because of TRAFFIC. Puh-Lease.

  39. AB says – reply to this


    439

    Damn, Perez! I must say, usually I think you're a big asshole, but I'm happy for you. You got an exclusive news scoop that even major news networks didn't get! Keep doing big thangs!

  40. Carlos says – reply to this


    440

    I am a MIAMI-DADE COUNTY Police officer - Here is your official report:

  42. Ana says – reply to this


    442

    Perez: I have never completely trusted your comments. But if this turns out to be true, you will be my new source for news!!!! I can't wait to find out for sure!!!!!!

  43. G-lo says – reply to this


    443

    Oh, that makes perfect sense…
    All the world's major news agencies collectively agreed to wait until after rush hour…
    Of course!

  44. UKer says – reply to this

  46. MiamiGator says – reply to this


    446

    I've heard the same thing independent of Perez. But I should point out something about the source. I wouldn't believe her if her tongue came notarized.
    Please don't let it be true because traffic will be a bitch and every idiot with a gun will be outside shooting them up in the air.
    Remember morons that what goes up, must come down!!!

    453

    It's a sad day if he really is dead. Can't believe you morons celebrating the death of a man who has fought for his country and has continously p**sed off the USA. I will be absolutley gutted if he is dead, but at least his memory remains and Cuba will hold out against the capitalist scum. Viva Castro!!!! xxx

    455

    Coast Guard has been called out. That doesn't track for Noriega. I'm thinking Perez is on to something.

  56. onesnarkygirl says – reply to this


    456

    Perhaps you should stick to fluff and leave real news to the professionals. Just a thought…..it's now 4:38 and you're still magically the only one reporting this.

  57. Angel says – reply to this


    457

    I just spoke to one of my co-workers in Florida…'it's a rumor, Miamia is already partying as though it happened although nothing has been confirmed…but yes, everyone in Miami is talking about it but there has been NO formal announcement.'

  58. me says – reply to this


    458

    Why would anything in Miami affect the announcement of his death? If it was true it would be world news.

  59. *** says – reply to this


    459

    I so hope Perez is right on this one just so you cynical fuckers who are putting the poor guy down are the ones who are actually in the wrong!!!!! If this is in fact true, then that is brilliant journalism and nobody can deny that!

    WE ARE NOT MOBILIZING!!!!!!!!! CASTRO IS NOT DEAD YET. JUST ALMOST…

    There is your official report. STOP PUTTING THIS BS ONLINE.

    Rumor unfounded and squashed.

  63. Cygnus says – reply to this


    463

    Only a total moron would do these two things:

    1) believe ANYTHING that you read on this, the most popular but also the ugliest version of the National Enquirer online - whether it be about Fidel Castro, Lindsay Lohan or anyone else, and…

    2) be retarded enough to get excited about being the first to post in a thread. What are you… 7? Your retardedness for doing this is only increased when you are actually #2 or #3 so Retard of the Day awards to both First and ksm. Well done.

    Lastly, it is the Stupid American who looks at Cuba or communism and sees evil. There's a huge timber forest in your own eye but all you can concentrate on is the molecule of wood found in the eyes of those who are different from you. You give those of us in America who can actually rub brain cells together a bad name.

    Now leave this place and stop making this bitch rich off of the advertising.

    Its 4:40, what is your definition of approximately?

    "approximately 4:00 P.M. Eastern"

    4:10 = you get me to read this site again and would recommend it to others
    4:20 = you get me to read this site again but I'll need to see something else good to keep returning
    4:30 = I might read this site again but only if someone mentions something worthy reading on it
    5:00 = I won't read this site again and would never recommend it
    Not Today = you're a complete liar, I'll never visit this site again and I'll tell others how horrible this site is

  97. beetlebugg says – reply to this


    497

    Okay now I'm not buying any of this. Since when does any news station or law enforcement wait until after rush hour to report this kind of news? So CNN isn't allowed to make an announcement until after Miami rush hour?

  98. please help us says – reply to this


    498

    i like how we're all soo surprised that the news we got from perez about castro dying is wrong. because he is always the authority on world news. lol

    OK, Im here in Miami, Listening to Radio Mambi, and watching channel 7 (the Hub of Fidel Death watch Central). Although everyone from the Cousin's Daugter of the wife of my mothers coworker To the Stepsister of the Bestfriend of my friends roomate have TOTTALLY CONFIRMED this LOL, I do not hear or see anything on the actual news.

    Channel 7 is INFAMOUS for blowing shit up WAAAAAAY before things are confirmed. Every Tropical storm that flickers in the atlantic is a DEATH FACTORY HEADING OUR WAY, hell they even reported that fidels brother was a closeted homosexual during his First DEATH…LOL, so that proves how they basically say and report what ever they think is a lead.

    NOW, all that bieng said I cant get enough of you Perez love you man…BUT, Im cuban and lemme tell you this is like when cavemen discovered Fire for us (ONLY THE BIGGEST THING IN THE WORLD)….and i dont hear or say anything.HELP US OUT!

    HELLO i gotta plan what to wear tonight on Calle 8, So for the love of LUCILLE BALL, whats going on PLEASE CONFIRM SOMETHING!!!!!!
