in many cases, these shocking stories (which would doubtless receive saturation coverage in any major American city) fall by the wayside, a victim of the dangers of life in the Mexican war zone.Did you know about this - the drug-war thingy, we mean? Neither did we! Fortunately, there's a solution:
So we bring you a new series called "Mexican Drug Blood," written by Miguel Angel Rodriguez Vazquez, editor of El Nuevo Alarma!, who will file frequent updates on one of the deadliest unseen wars. His first entry will drop today and the photos are graphic, so you've been warned.Now, see, that's just the balance we need! El Nueva Alarma!, for our North o' the Border readers, is the newspaper equivalent of Faces of Death, but without the redeeming social value. (Seriously, click this link at your peril.) In case you thought the whole drug-war thingy was being covered up and the murder porn was being censored, Gawker's got your back.
So Rodriguez's first entry did, in fact, drop today. The information is... well, pedestrian. Apparently there's an election going on. And 60,000 dead people are kinda sorta an election-year issue. Also, a guy got killed. You'll never look at Mexico the same way again, will you?
As for the murder porn - El Nueva Alarma!'s stock in trade - well, "you've been warned" that "the photos are graphic"...
We're not sure what those piles of little boxes are, but we think the car is some kind of Nissan.
We're really don't know which is more offensive -- serving up the same old drug-war porn while being all superior and self-congratulatory about it, or actually not serving it up, while also being all superior and self-congratulatory about it. Pornographers, at least, tend to deliver the goods. Otherwise, we call them carnival barkers.
