[OP-ED]: Cacería de periodistas en México

 03/28/2017 - 13:40
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.

Freedom of the press Mexican style.

It is a sad, even cynical way of referring to the unending slaughter of journalists perpetrated with impunity in our neighbor to the South, where it’s open season on freedom of speech.

Backing off from their key campaign promise marks a big defeat for both Ryan and the president, who’d pushed hard for the bill and then pressed for a vote on it. Trump is now presenting himself as a bystander to the loss, and Republican voters may well side with him.

Los latinos se parecen mucho a los irlandeses. Ambos grupos se trasladaron a Estados Unidos como desafortunados inmigrantes católicos, provenientes de países fallidos, sólo para que los despreciaran cuando llegaron aquí.
