Mexico's Deadly Drug War: A Look At The Violent 5-Year Conflict
Cartels Attack Journalists At Televisa Network With Grenades – Cartels, becoming increasingly dissatisfied with how the media portrays their operations, sends gunmen to silence reporters at Televisa Network by flinging grenade and firing shots into the buildings in 2009 with a message: “You better stop reporting about us already. Also report about the ‘narcoleaders.' This is a warning.” A similar attack would be repeated in 2010. As a result, Televisa provides journalists with bulletproof vests, although many reporters resigned fearing attacks from the drug gangs. Several journalists have been killed and kidnapped since the onset of the war.
