El Blog del Narco
Blog del Narco has emerged as the premiere source for Mexico’s Narco News with about 3 million unique visits per month. Mexico has become one of the most dangerous countries in the world for freedom of the press. Many reporters have been executed or kidnapped. For his own safety, the author of Blog del Narco has maintained his/her anonymity by only letting two people (whom are very close to him) know his identity. It is a source of great curiosity how Narco Blog gets the stories and the pictures often well before traditional outlets.
The Blog has been recognized by CNN, Univision, LaJornada, Milenio.com to mention only a few.
"We decided to tell people what is actually happening and tell the stories exactly as they happen, without alteration or modifications of convenience," its author tells Boing Boing. "The main goal of the blog is to help Mexican people to take all necessary measures against the insecurity."
