An Original Publication Bites the Dust


After a wild and news-making three and a half years of "authentic journalism" from the front lines of the Drug War (south of the Mexican border), Al Giordano's Narco News is apparently shutting down. (Link via Romenesko)

  1. At least he’s leaving the site up with its archives. It’s still a good resource.

  2. And thanks, anonymous gunslinger, for pointing out Giordano’s new blog.

  3. It sucks Al wouldn’t ask his readers to help him out after his grants/rich funding source (Tides perhaps)? ran out — he wouldn’t even put up a little ‘please donate maybe if you’d kinda like to’ button on his site. I’d of donated a couple bucks to at least keep him going for the rest of the year and my guess is that at least a few hundred other people would have chipped in as well — look at all the coverage we are missing on the chaos of Bolivia in recent days and weeks — we have to reply on 2 paragraph AP stories if you don’t read espanol…his anti-capitalism did him him ohh well — Viva NarcoNews, Down with Chavez, Long live Al!

  4. He can always go back to working at NUMA with Dirk Pitt.
