"Narco News, its website, and the writers
who post information, are entitled to all the First Amendment
protections accorded a newspaper-magazine or journalist... Furthermore,
the nature of the articles printed on the website and Mr. Giordano's
statements at Columbia University constitute matters of public
concern because the information disseminated relates to the drug
trade and its affect on people living in this hemisphere..."

"And in the cause of journalism
we're also pleased
about a recent ruling by Judge Paula Omansky of the New York
State Supreme Court dismissing libel charges against Mario Menendez,
a Mexican journalist, and Al Giordano, editor and publisher of
Narco News, an Internet magazine (www.narconews.com),
published in Mexico, that reports on corruption and the drug
war in Latin America.... Banamex took him to court in Mexico
and lost. The bank then sued Narco News, along with Menendez,
in New York. Again they lost in what is a stirring victory for
freedom of speech on the Internet. Narco News has broken
important stories on the drug war. If it had lost, a chill could
have settled over the web."
