The 36-year-old journalist made his remarks in the border city of Tijuana, where he presented the latest edition of his book "Oaxaca sitiada" (Besieged Oaxaca). He first wrote the work a decade ago to tell the story of a 2006 uprising in that impoverished, largely Indian-populated state against then-Gov. Ulises Ruiz.

[OP-ED]: The elite media -- self-absorbed but not self-aware

 05/12/2017 - 09:17
Now that Trump is president, you can turn to just about any channel -- absent Fox News -- and hear reporters and anchors accusing Trump or other administration officials of outright lying or pursuing policies that will hurt people -- or, in the case of the GOP health care bill, actually kill them. 

Riddle me this: How can the so-called elite media be so self-absorbed and still have so little self-awareness? 

Today’s journalists too often make themselves the story. If a reporter gets arrested at a protest, he’ll be on the Sunday shows doing what he is not supposed to be doing: expressing his opinion.

[OP-ED]: Los medios de elite, ensimismados pero sin conocerse a sí mismos

Ahora que Trump es presidente, uno puede prender casi cualquier canal—menos Fox News—para escuchar a reporteros y locutores que acusan a Trump o a otros funcionarios del gobierno directamente de mentir o de perseguir políticas que perjudicarán a las personas—o, en el caso de la ley de asistencia médica del Partido Republicano, que en realidad las matará. 

 Aclárenme lo siguiente: ¿Cómo pueden, los así llamados medios de elite, estar tan ensimismados y al mismo tiempo conocerse tan poco a sí mismos? 

Los periodistas de hoy a menudo se convierten en la noticia. Si arrestan a un reportero en una manifestación, ese individuo se presenta después en los programas del domingo haciendo lo que no debe hacer: expresando su opinión.

Although the decision by FOX News to sack its ratings superstar Bill O’Reilly in the wake of revelations that FOX paid $13-million to settle multiple sexual harassment claims against O’Reilly sparked cheers in some circles, circumstances surrounding O’Reilly’s ouster do not merit a champagne celebration.
