I sent the email below to Jesus Diaz Jr., publisher of TMH and ENH, yesterday. To date, no response. I'm sure Mr. Diaz Jr. is a busy man but I think these questions deserve some answers:

Dear Mr. Diaz Jr.:UPDATE: Well I guess Mr. Diaz received and read my email because Defede profile page linked above now forwards to the listing of all of Herald Columnists.
As you know (or perhaps don't know) Andres Reynaldo, a columnist for El Nuevo Herald, outed himself as having contributed to Radio Marti in a column he wrote, which was published on 9/20. I am wondering what if any action MHPC has taken against him or intends to take against him. He is still listed on the El Nuevo Herald's web site, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything because Jim Defede is still listed on the Herald's site: [Link]
Reynaldo claims that his boss at the time of his moonlighting for OCB (2002-2004), Carlos Castañeda, knew about it. Did Castañeda also know about the others, the ones that were recently dismissed? Why would Reynaldo be held to a different standard than the others? What about other non-Cuban-American Herald writers that may have participated in OCP[B] programs and paid for it in the years prior those investigated. In an email to me Mr. Fiedler claims the FOIA requests only went back two years. Why limit the investigation to only two years? As an employer of at least three journalists that "violated journalistic ethics" don't you want to know who else might have, as well?
Thank you in advance for your response.
