- Mainstream Media Turns Blind Eye as Reporter Survives Assassination Attempt and Another Dies
By Miguel Guadalupe - huffingtonpost.com : March 05, 2010
Several nights ago, Mega News Nocturno, Spanish language Mega TV's nightly newscast, (where I fully disclose my wife works), reported a shocking story that stopped me in my tracks. On Monday, March 1st, Honduran reporter Karol Cabrera, host of various TV and radio news and commentary programs, was shot at close range numerous times by assassins who succeeded in murdering her driving companion and fellow journalist Joseph Ochoa. Amazingly, the whole event was recorded because Cabrera had been calling into a live radio show at the time.

In some ways, Santa Rosa is isolated from other parts of the country and so I don't always know about what's happening.

- Liberalism in the morgue

He has done me several favors to protect me and various threatened artists, and as such I owe a certain courtesy to Ambassador Llorens, although I am ashamed that he has taken so long to notice that, in Honduras, there are political murders. On the other hand, I am not surprised that the ambassador insists on calling upon Liberal leaders to exhort them to reconstruct or reunify the Liberal Party of Honduras. It does not offend or bother me; I'm not a nationalist. If only all foreigners would be truly interested in our politics and our institutions. And that all ambassadors would exhort us to protect them and offer assistance.

Offensive remarks on Honduras, gratuitous insults in Brazil
– Hillary Clinton's Latin American tour has not been a success
Hillary Clinton's Latin America tour is turning out to be about as successful as George W Bush's visit in 2005, when he ended up leaving Argentina a day ahead of schedule just to get the hell out of town. The main difference is that she is not being greeted with protests and riots. For that she can thank the positive media image that her boss, President Obama, has managed to maintain in the region, despite his continuation of his predecessor's policies.
