This is a pretty remarkable story that shows a serious test for journalistic practices in Mexico, where cartel violence has broken down the ability to even communicate the news.

an unusual story. the question becomes, it it more important to risk lives to give people the facts, information about their environment, or is it better to 'live to fight another day'? i'd like to have heard from the bbc about other newspapers which may have considered this choice, and also from some readers of the city's paper or others if they exist.

This is a well written story of the stuggle between the rights of jourlalists to publish news ethically and the moral dilema of protecting one's life. In addition, it's a great story for those not aware of the cartel's influence on societies in Mexico and the impllications this has for the entire contry.
