Advertisers left, because of the negative tone of the paper, but in reality, there was not a lot of positive things going on, if there were, Nancy would publish it. Her life was threatened, her newspapers stolen, and she was the defendant in a multimillion dollar law suit whose plaintiff’s were powerful Mexicans. She was also threatened with deportation and incarceration.
She is leaving for business reasons as there is no future in the Gringo Gazette. I am sure that the appeal of Baja has lessened for her as well. It is a changed Baja from five years earlier.
I wish her well. I and many others will miss the Gazette, and I sincerely hope she doesn’t quit journalism. Although she admits that is not her profession, it is her calling, whether she admits it or not.
Nancy, vaya con Dios! Robert roels
