Government-paid journalists[edit]

On September 8, 2006, the publisher of the Miami Herald, Jesús Díaz Jr., fired three Nuevo Herald journalists – Pablo Alfonso, Wilfredo Cancio Isla and Olga Connor – because they freelanced for Radio/TV Marti, a U.S. Government news agency.[6] Less than a month later, Díaz was instructed by his superiors at The McClatchy Company, the parent company of the Miami Herald and el Nuevo Herald, to re-hire the three journalists because they had prior approval to freelance for Radio/TV Marti from their supervisor at the time, el Nuevo Herald executive editor Humberto Castelló. Díaz resigned after reinstating the fired journalists.
