AMLO v Milenio… or. Pejelargato takes da bait.

27 March 2018

Dr. Barry Carr, watching the amazing growth of the leftist Morena movement from his perch down under in Melbourne, suggested somebody needed to translate Víctor M. Toledo’s review of the AMLO interview on Milenio TV. Somebody just did.

Milenio editor Carlos Marin. (Milenio TV)

Milenio is to the Mexican left as Breitbart is to U.S. Progressives… in other words, nothing good to say under any circumstances. Unlike Breitbart though, Milenio is not just an on-line publication, but a entire media outlet… with its flagship newspaper, a TV news network, radio news and social media posts. I admit I read it regularly, not for laughs or to get my dander up (like with Breitbart) but because outside its editorial content, it isn’t a bad newspaper, and Carlos Marin … his politics aside.. is a good editor. But he let his emotions get the better of him, and created an event that — one more analogy — might be to Mexican politcal televisin history what the 1960 Kennedy-Nixon debate was to the United States.

The whole debate is here:  AMLO: Revive el debate de Andrés Manuel López Obrador

    Great post! Again, thanks for covering the election. I’m going to watch the video.

    Long ago, in my former career, I met with a Mexican political consultant to fund managers (which is what I was). His view of AMLO was that he was misbranded as a leftist, being more (in the consultant’s view) a pragmatist who wasn’t tied to ideology when formulating policy. Let’s hope that’s the case.

    Also I’d note that my former CDMX landlord, a businessman and avowed capitalist, is also a big AMLO supporter and claims that corruption in CDMX was at a nadir when AMLO left.

    So let’s hope AMLO can push Mexico forward. There’s so much that needs to be done, and the country has so much potential. It just needs for the political class to not be so parasitic, and then the country could fly.
