Unreported World, Channel 4's foreign affairs documentary strand, returns later this month for its 21st series and will include the story of Mexican crime journalist Lucy Sosa who works for a newspaper whose journalists have been murdered by criminal gangs.
The documentary shows how Sosa lives in constant danger working for El Diario in Ciudad Juárez, which covers the murder capital of Mexico where last year 3,000 people were killed in the battle between drug cartels.
I am a freelance journalist based in the UK and was deputy editor of Press Gazette, the journalists' magazine, from 1993 until 2006. I want to give an independent view on media matters.
