MEXICO : 04 April UPDATE: Blog Del Narco Editor...Reveals Herself; 'Valor De Tamaulipas' Blog...Disappears.
In northern Mexico...many media refuse to publish any narco news...especially after threats...and attacks...on staffs and offices.
But for 3 years...the Blog del Narco has posted gruesome narco details...even after 3 of its contributors were murdered...and their bodies displayed.
The blog gets about 3 million views per month.
Now...the blog's female editor...calling herself 'Lucy'...has emerged from the shadows...to promote her book about the efforts and ordeals of running the dangerous clandestine website.
Another narco newsblog...Valor de Tamaulipas/Bravery For Tamaulpis...has disappeared.
A $46,000 bounty on its editors may have proved too rich and dangerous for this blog covering the troubled border region.
Its Twitter and Facebook accounts...vanished.
