Periodistas protestan por el asesinato de tres de sus compañeros, en Guadalajara (México) en 2017: Miroslava Breach (Chihuahua), Ricardo Monluí (Veracruz) y Cecilio Pineda (Guerrero). EFE
Spanish

Libertad de prensa a la mexicana. Es una manera triste, cínica quizás, de referirse a la interminable matanza de periodistas en el país azteca.  Perpetrada con total impunidad, todo indica que hay una cacería inmisericorde de comunicadores sociales al sur de la frontera.
