US Embassy Documents Confirm Televisa-Peña Nieto Deal in Mexico–Narco News Bulletin

Narco News broke the story last night that US Embassy cables released by
Wikileaks confirm the allegations of manipulation of Mexican political
races by Televisa and other media… Although this political tactic is
being portrayed in international media as some new scandal, it has been a
part of Mexican politics and media for a long time…Note this quote from
one of the cables: “Journalists and their bosses have been more or less
free to engage in the time-honoured Mexican electoral tradition of selling
favourable print and broadcast coverage to candidates and parties>

Guardian version of the story is also posted below… molly
