Cuba's first major independent general-interest news outlet in five decades was hacked Wednesday shortly after being launched by the country's best-known dissident blogger.A little more than an hour after its launch, the site www.14ymedio.com was directing readers inside Cuba to a page dedicated to scathing criticism of blogger Yoani Sanchez by well-known pro-government writers. Access outside Cuba appeared to be unimpeded. Sanchez accused the Cuban government of using its control of the country's Internet to divert readers to the critical site. M.H. Lagarde, a Cuban blogger who has frequently written critically of Sanchez and in favor of government policy, said the critical site, www.yoanislandia.com, had existed for some time but that he didn't know who ran it.Dissidents already produce a handful of news sites from inside Cuba, and the Roman Catholic Church prints two major magazines.
