MEXICO : Coahuila Newspapers End Narco Crime Coverage.
A growing reaction by some Mexican news organizations about ongoing narco violence ...is to ignore it.
In Coahuila state...the Zocalo newspaper group...announced it will stop reporting narco news...to protect its reporters and staff.
Zocalo has newspapers in Saltillo, Piedras Negras, Cuidad Acuna and Monclova.
Last week the company's chief executive was threatened on posters plastered in several cities.
Other newspapers and even TV outlets have been threatened and attacked.
Narco terror has continued at a steady and horrific pace during the first 100 days of new President Pena Nieto's regime.
