Miami New Times Editor Defends Police Chief Quote

Since being quoted in a Feb. 16 New Times Miami column as saying "Fuck the Cubans," Miami Police Chief John Timoney has denied speaking those words in local broadcast and print media. But in this week's Miami New Times, Editor Chuck Strouse addresses Timoney directly: "Though you've declined to return our phone calls, two things are clear to us. You, not New Times, have a motivation to lie about this. And you have a history of shading the truth and disavowing your words."
