Blag… Blag… Blagojevitch in the Mexican Press

Yesterday, the governor of the great state of Illinois, Rod Blagojevitch, was arrested on multiple charges of corruption surrounding his alleged attempts to sell the former senate seat of Barack Obama ‘to the highest bidder.’  Wow.  Illinois voters have sure picked some winners — the governor Blagojevitch replaced is currently behind bars, too.  If you really want to know what’s going on, check out the hometown Chicago Tribune, which headlines today’s edition with: “Is Blagojevitch ‘crazy’?”  

Since I’ve been documenting U.S. newspaper headlines on the Mexican drug war (see link at top of page), it seems fair to link to the headlines of Mexican newspapers, which have also picked up the story and have run a few articles on the arrest.  In no particular order:

It’s a little too early for me to tell whether there’s anything interesting to say on how the Mexican press in interpreting and presenting the drama apart from the U.S. dailies.  If I do find anything, I post some more.  In the mean time, feel free to comment.


México, D.F.
