Again. Really?

This time, the Reader‘s cover story isn’t about violence in Tijuana, it’s about drugs.  There are no official stats in the story, just a book and an author who assumes tons and tons of people are crossing the border to buy pentobarbital, a drug used to commit suicide.

The journalist did go to two pharmacies, so it must be a trend worth writing about, right?

    I almost laughed when I saw the Reader today. Two blatant anti-Tijuana articles in less than the space of a month.

    They picked the story off the NY Times, I caught the story about 2 weeks ago: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/21/world/americas/21tijuana.html

    Even the times article is sketch.

    I have to say though that I will keep on reading the reader for their only saving grace – Ed Bedford for the Tin Fork restaurant review. He had a great article on a local restaurant that specializes in Birria de Chivo – which interestingly has an outlet in TJ. http://www.sandiegoreader.com/news/2008/aug/20/goat-guy/

    PS Dont forget to vote on the reader homepage poll on whether you ever travel to Mexico. lol
