Most women’s attackers remain free while the Mexican government does next to nothing to prevent and punish gender violence
There’s nothing quite like being a journalist in Mexico. On the one hand, those of us who wake up early enough have the chance every weekday to speak directly to the president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, during his morning news conferences, known as “mañaneras.”
José José had just died and many Mexicans (as well as others in Latin America) were desperate to know more about the somber circumstances.
This month, for perhaps the first time in history, the word “Latinx” was uttered during an American presidential debate. As a moderator at that Democratic debate in Houston, I began by telling the 10 candidates that the time had come to discuss “Latinx” issues.
Let’s be honest: Social media is a jungle. There’s always someone out there ready to attack; you never know when it’s coming, or from whom. Even words typed with the best of intentions can end up distorted and crushed when you’re online.
A dictatorship is a dictatorship — it doesn’t matter if it’s a right-wing or a left-wing government. This is because all dictators, regardless of their politics or which country they happen to lead, want power first and foremost; they will torture and kill to keep it, then lie to cover up their crimes.
Those who are set on killing minorities are aided by the fact that they can easily obtain assault weapons in this country.
It’s been just over a year since Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s landslide victory in Mexico’s presidential election, and some Mexicans say they are dismayed by the tough media..
If Andrés Manuel López Obrador has changed anything, its that the Mexican president is now expected to show his face to the public on a regular basis.
Nicolás Maduro stole my television crew’s cameras and expelled me from the country, all because he was afraid of an interview.
