..Too Cuban Centric on the politics with Suarez, Diaz and Ros-Lehtinen. This makes it seem like the Cubans made modern Miami and that the other groups didn’t have the same effect. That is not today’s gateway city that is Miami. Also, Miami Vice was a hit before Suarez. Suarez is the jack-ass mayor that rebudgeted the Old Miami Arena to the point that it was too small and outdated for the Miami Heat that ultimately forced the Team to leverage its power to be on the Waterfront and now he is pro-park s and recreation…reality check please. Miami had already made zoning changes to create Brickell and get banks before the drug years. This is a more superficial view of Miami and is most surprising given that Chuck Todd is from Miami. Surprised that Chuck didn’t interview Regalado. Perhaps because he can’t articulate well in English. Chuck seemed to focus on Miami Beach development when in Reality, Miami is growing at an enormous pace. Faena’s development is small in comparison to Brickell Center, Miami World, Miami Central – All Aboard Florida and more to come. NBC and Chuck Todd only painted a skewed and partial look at Miami…they could do better, Miami is better sand bigger than this.

You have spoken the truth, but people would rather dislike your post then attempt to intellectually try to rebuttal you.

A nice and generally positive report, to be sure. But I am getting tired of the false mainstream media-generated narrative that Miami has no industry at all or any business activity other than tourism and real estate development.

Journalists such as Carl Hiassen and Billy Corben repetitively make this claim with no objective evidence whatsoever to back it up because it fits into their neatly packaged pseudo-reality version of South Florida. No mention is made of Miami’s vast and growing international banking and financial services industry, its rapidly growing biotech and medical research sector, international trade through the growing seaports system or MIA. There are hundreds of small manufacturing firms in South Florida, especially in Miami-Dade. There are some rather impressive higher education institutions in the region and the corporate HQ’s of a number firms including some Fortune 500 corporations. I could go on and on but the frequently implied notion that the whole area is dependent solely on the hospitality industry and the construction of luxury condos is ridiculously simplistic, and typical of mainstream media bias.

This was a meet the press documentary. It was not reported on MTP yesterday. I just watched MTP. It was all about the candidates and nothing about Miami.

That is a pretty good short video on Miami’s history. Some things I knew and forgot about and some things I didn’t know.

I still catch some of the old Miami Vice shows on TV from time to time. Classic
