Twenty leading journalists gathered in Mexico City on Friday, Feb. The event was the fifth in a series of bilingual workshops that IRE conducted from , which were supported in part by grants from the Ford Foundation. Award-winning investigative reporter Sandra Rodriguez of El Diario de Juarez told how she mines both personal sources and public records to dig beneath the surface of the explosion of homicides in Ciudad Juarez. Well-known veteran investigative editor Ignacio Rodriguez Reyna, founder of EmeEquis magazine, spoke about how the decreasing investment in investigative teams has impacted the ability to do in-depth reporting on the border and elsewhere in Mexico — as well as in the United States — putting a greater burden on individual efforts.

Among the ideas: build a collective archive of court documents on most-wanted cross-border criminals; continue to offer workshops, online courses and conference panels on cross-border topics; and build stronger networks with other organizations, like the DART Center and the Inter American Press Association, to increase support to investigative journalists under attack.

This was only an OK work for me - while the book did a good job of outlining all the investigative steps that went into the research and reporting of this scandal, I wasn't impressed at all with the tone.
A lot of what seemed to be laid out as 'ah ha' moments of investigative triumph I was left with thinking - well, yeah, of course that's how that should have happened. But of course, this may be very much a biased view from a US perspective. We all know it exists everywhere in the world but this was just a slap in the face. It was found out that the Mexican president was in cahoots with a major conglomerate who had subsidiaries up the wazoo! Basically the Mexican president offered up all the cushy contracts on a silver platter to this company while a subsidiary of said company built him a 10 million dollar home.
He and his soap opera wife denied everything and even came up with ridiculous explanations on how she, a Mexican actress, funded the project on her own.
Before everything came to light they decided to try and bring down the journalists responsible for the story. While they did lose their jobs they still fervently pursued the story to try and get justice. The case finally did make it to court but that was a complete farce and a joke of an investigation.
The president actually appointed an investigator of his choosing and of course the court threw out the case saying nothing was amiss. Nov 09, Javiera rated it really liked it. I found the portrayal to be too self-congratulatory. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
