A Journey Through the Narcoland: Money, Drugs, Lies and the Worst Face of Government Corruption with Anabel Hernandez
On this edition of Demanufacturing Consent: Guillermo is joined by investigative reporter and author of the bestselling book, Narcoland: The Mexican Drug Lords and their Godfathers, Ms. Anabel Hernandez. Anabel shares her remarkable story, the tragedy her family has endured, and how it sparked a journey uncovering the hidden world of organized crime, implicating the highest levels of government.
We discuss the contents of her book, Narcoland, her discovery of the federal government’s complicity in the prison escape of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who the big players really are, and where the truth leads when you follow the money. Despite constant threats to her life and currently under 24-hour protection, Anabel deconstructs the Mexican government’s demonstrable lies and propaganda spin and demonstrates that the real story is not the cartels or the violence—the “mother of all problems” is government corruption.
