Mexico is one of the deadliest places in the world to be a journalist, with more than 100 having been murdered since 2000 — many at the behest of drug cartels or public officials. Carlos Bravo Regidor, associate professor and journalism program coordinator at the Center for Research and Teaching in Economics, and journalist and author Alfredo Corchado (“Midnight in Mexico: A Reporter’s Journey Through a Country’s Descent into Darkness”) discuss this threat to the fourth estate with moderator León Krauze, USC Annenberg journalism chair and Univision anchor.
“Journalism in Mexico: A Deadly Occupation” will be held Wednesday, Oct. 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Billy Wilder Theater in the Hammer Museum at UCLA. The event is free but tickets are required and available at the box office one hour before the program.
Parking: Under the museum, $6 flat rate after 6 p.m. Cash only.
