Warm Welcome at Diario de Hoy


SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador, 19 September 2014 — Despite a breaking story about the impending arrest of a former president on charges of corruption, a large contingency of reporters, photojournalists, editors and managers of the daily newspaper, Diario de Hoy, attended my presentation. It was a measure of Salvadoran hospitality that they put aside their professional duties for a bit to respectfully attend the event.

As in other encounters, the topic of my discussion was, “The Role of Journalism in a Democratic Society.” I was invited to visit El Salvador by the US Embassy in the capital.
