President’s office bars critical magazine?

A release this morning says that Proceso, one of Mexico’s most well-respected an critical titles, has apparently been barred from covering tours by President Felipe Calderon due to its consitently critical tone.

The Center for Journalism and Public Ethics (CEPET) issued this statement this morning following last week’s publication of Proceso, in which it said that its journalists have not been included in a Presidential tour since March last year.

According to an article written by reporter Daniel Lizárraga, entitled “La guerra contra Proceso”, the magazine is only being included in events at the President’s home – Los Pinos – or in states near the capital.

More to come…..
