VivirLatino asks Where IS All of the Coverage on the Disaster in Latin America?

New Latino blog out there with English coverage of the Latino world. Some good interesting stories, but I am not sure if I am endorsing them as of yet. They seem to have a team of good quality writters.

They had an interesting post on the lack of coverage on the Latin American disasters. Good point--I guess everyone is to busy on the Harriet Miers nomination. The story comes via HispanicTips.
I just read a great article entitled, Central American Flood, Where is the Coverage?, discussing the flooding from Hurricane Stan in Mexico & Guatemala and the lack of press attention in the US. I have to say that this is something that has been bothering me for some time, and I'm glad someone has taken the lead in discussing it. Hundreds have died and thousands are in great need.

I'm not even going to summarize it...just recommend that everyone go read the article. It's time that the US start paying attention to the rest of the world, as they pay attention to us. It'll come back to bite us sooner than many think.

Head on over and check out the site. I'll be keeping an eye on it for a while, and linking to interesting stories when I see them.
