Backpack Journalism at Prensa Latina

HAVANA, Cuba, 8 November 2011 — I gave an afternoon presentation at the Havana headquarters of Prensa Latina, Cuba’s global wire service. Life is curious. When I worked for United Press International (UPI) in Mexico City some three decades ago, we subscribed to Prensa Latina as a key source of information about events in Cuba, which was part of our area of coverage. Now, I’m giving presentations here on the methodology that we refer to as “backpack journalism.” (Photos by Roberto Morejón.)
