Killed in Mexico’s drug wars: Honest reporting

Last edited 18th January 2016

Recently, Marcus Roberts wrote about the violence associated with Mexico’s war on drugs. When media are afraid to report the news, there’s another casualty: Informed decision-making and voting. As Dana Priest put it at The Independent, “Readers are unaware of the life-and-death decisions editors make every day not to anger different local cartels”: As deadline descended on El Mañana’s newsroom and reporters rushed to file their stories, someone in the employ of a local drug cartel called with a demand from his crime boss. That “someone” was a journalist at another paper, who was known to be an enlace” (a link to the local cartel). The enlace demanded that El Mañana publish a story saying that the mayor had not, after all, paid the cartel $2 million in protection money, as was earlier (probably correctly) reported. And defiance of the cartel can mean death. The enlaces are part of the deeply institutionalized system of cartel censorship imposed on media outlets in northeastern Mexico abutting the border of Texas. How it works is an open secret in newsrooms here but not among readers.
