2. This is bad
The Fox people stole the election and now they are shooting people.

Of course, the US government won't care about this, because free speech and truth is the enemy.

7. Nor the press.
I think it should be front page news that governmental forces are shooting people over a disputed national election.

3. Sad State Of Affairs
And people wonder why people immigrate from Mexico to America?

corrupt government, low wages, discrimination

I know this isn't about immigration, it just hit me as I was reading this how there is so much death and corruption there.

Of course, there is corruption here. There is death here too.

Sad story indeed. 36 years old, too young to die doing anything, but to die as a journalist trying to bring the truth, is noble, but sad.

4. Fox Vicente is Bush's Buddy Too
"You keep oppressing your people, so that my corporate constituents can take advantage of your cheap wages in Mexico."

I bet Bush is happy to hear this.
