CPJ's Lauría tells Fox News about Mexico’s press crisis

CPJ Senior Program Coordinator for the Americas Carlos Lauría was live on Fox News’ “Strategy Room” today talking about the deadly environment for journalists in Mexico. Video is above.

The focus of the segment was about how drug cartels are kidnapping and killing journalists in order to control the flow of information. Lauría also talked about Mexican President Felipe Calderón’s struggle to protect freedom of expression in the country. 

More than 30 journalists have been killed or disappeared in the country since Calderón was elected in 2006, making Mexico one of the world's most dangerous countries for the press, according to CPJ research.

this is great. I really wish those two interviewers wouldnt've been so rude though. I'm a kid reporting on Mexico's Drug War for my school newspaper and even I could see they plainly didn't have a clue what they were talking about. But thank you CPJ for getting this injustice out there! Good job Lauria!
