Colombia's media pretending hugely popular series on Uribe doesn't exist

by Adriaan Alsema June 27, 2020

Colombia’s media are pretty much pretending that “Matarife,” the hugely successful online series on former President Alvaro Uribe, does not exist.

Last week’s episode on the evidence Uribe did favors to the Medellin Cartel drew an astonishing million visitors, but wasn’t news worthy to the country’s media.

The claim of Daniel Mendoza that he has been on the run and is fearing for his life didn’t even trigger press freedom foundation FLIP to speak out in his defense.

Priority #1: character assassination

The opinion pieces that have appeared in media have solely been dedicating themselves to discrediting the series and its maker.

. . .

Priority #2: Judicial harassment

Pundits and politicians tied to the mafia have begun filing criminal charges against Mendoza, who broke the rule that you don’t reveal evidence of Uribe’s ties to the Medellin Cartel.

Doing so has been getting people killed since the assassination of Justice Minister Rodrigo Lara in 1984 who discovered that a Uribe family helicopter was found at a cartel cocaine factory in southern Colombia.
