El Faro wins human rights award

The Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA) awarded one of its 2012 Human Rights Awards to El Faro, the online periodical in El Salvador last month.   WOLA granted the award to El Faro for its "investigative journalism that shines a spotlight on corruption and organized crime."

I have been a long time reader of El Faro.   It is one of my most trusted sources of information for what I write in this blog.  In a country where too often journalism was either at the service of the wealthy and powerful, or blindly following political orthodoxy of the left, El Faro has been offering credibility and quality investigative journalism.
