Comments about PBS Reportero DVD:

Powerful story about the risks faced by journalists reporting on corruption and drug trafficking in Tijuana, Mexico. Gives a sense of the complicated and difficult decisions that journalists face, both in terms of their work and life choices. The US news media tends to focus on the drug traffickers, the violence, etc. and not on the untold story of how millions of Mexico live under this cloud. This film does an excellent job of portraying how Mexican journalists struggle with this corruption and make difficult decisions to stand up to the drug traffickers and government officials who are collaborating with them.
