Fighting for Real News

“I don’t see a society that stands by its journalists or protects them. At Ríodoce we don’t have any support from business owners to finance projects. If we went bankrupt and shut down nobody would do anything [to help]. We have no allies.”

“Inside me there is a pessimistic bastard, distressed and sometimes sullen, who feels like a somewhat bitter old man with watery eyes, who is bothered by having his solitude spoiled. But he dreams.”

“I have an idea of another country, for my family and other Mexicans, that does not continue to fall into an abyss from which there may be no return.”
