Description

Mexico, especially the U.S.-Mexico border, is now considered the most dangerous place to practice journalism. In the past 6 years, more than 35 journalists have either been killed or have disappeared. In spite of the deadly beat, some journalists are doing courageous work, although these examples are increasingly fewer. We'll discuss the challenges faced by the Mexican press at a time when U.S. media companies are also downsizing, particularly border bureaus.
