Semi-protected edit request on 14 October 2018[edit]

Che was born on May 14, and his birth certificate was doctored to save his parents from scandal. See the first chapter of Jon Lee Anderson's (New Yorker, lived five years in Cuba writing the book) 1997 biography, excerpted at the NYTimes: ShaneRyan123 (talk) 05:47, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Not done Every other source says June 14, does one anecdote supersede that? Would need discussion. This has been discussed before, see the talk archives (for example, Talk:Che_Guevara/Archive_5#Alleged_Uncertainty_about_Che's_Birthdate). Fish+Karate 09:15, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

The section in the first paragraph ", but he was a murderer of Cuban peaceful opponents, a terrorist idealized by communist propaganda and his famous photo." has been clearly hastily added without a source. It's been placed after a full stop and a citation as if it was a continuation of the previous sentence. Not only this but it shows writer bias and is blatantly not written from a neutral position in the slightest. It should be regarded as vandalism.

You're quite correct. I have removed it. Thank you for picking this up. HiLo48 (talk) 10:15, 23 October 2018 (UTC)

Che Guevara was interviewed by Herbert Matthews in 1959. In this interview he states he has no connections to communism and even goes as far as to say that the U.S. government began the rumor.[1] Ldague (talk) 21:27, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

 Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format and provide a reliable source if appropriate. --DannyS712 (talk) 07:12, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
