How Mexican journalists are responding to reports that the government has been monitoring their communications

Translated from the Spanish by Patrick Timmons of the Mexican Journalism Translation ProjectLeer en español.

“Is it a surprise that the Mexican government spies on you?”

I did not exaggerate when I responded to the foreign correspondent’s question about the latest scandal rocking the Mexican government: “No. We have always known that.”

At least a decade ago, journalists began to have meetings we considered “sensitive” so we did what we saw human rights defenders doing: place a cardboard box outside the meeting room and ask attendees to put their cellphones in it. When we didn’t have a box and a patio we put the cell phones in the refrigerator.
