New From Mexico Reporter

Mexico Reporter has two new troubling posts. The first, published today, reports on journalist Lydia Cacho and the Mexican Supreme Court. Cacho (background here and here) apparently made waves last night by announcing in Mexico City that all six Supreme Court judges presiding over her case against Puebla Governor Mario Marin had been bribed.

Next up on Mexico Reporter, a spate of violence against journalists the past week continues to make Mexico one of the most dangerous countries for journalists behind Iraq.

I'd say happy reading, but nothing very uplifting about any of that. It's worth checking out all the same.
