Another journalist was killed on Friday, this one in Guerrero.
While we're on the topic, a couple of bars were shot up here in town last night or early this morning, and there hasn't been a word of it in the local papers, their internet pages, or, from what I've seen, on the TV news shows. I heard one rumor that 20 people were killed and that the local hospital was teeming with wailing family-members this morning. Both stories seem unlikely to be true, especially the first, but this is an example of how if the professional media outlets aren't working on a story, the stories that gain credibility via word of mouth exponentially inflate the gore and the danger.
Update: The story was finally broken, not surprisingly by an out-of-town paper: Excélsior reports that 10 were killed and 15 wounded. The gore, as it turns out, wasn't exponentially inflated, though it was inflated, or so it would seem. To my knowledge, no local media has mentioned the event, though I wouldn't be shocked if a local news program has covered it. What a horrible time and place to be a twenty-something who likes a good nightclub.
