    Sorry to distract you from Colombia’s latest faux scandal, but we have a real problem

    It seems I have upset some people by reporting that Colombia’s military assassinated more civilians under former President Alvaro Uribe than the FARC has in 30 years.

    If you think I wasn’t shocked finding this out, you’re wrong. I never anticipated running a headline with such an outrageous claim until I was confronted with it myself. When I was, I was just as surprised as you. Like you probably did, I too supposed the FARC would be responsible for more assassinations.

    My job is to bring the news, not to twist it in order to prevent mentioning the elephant in the room, something Colombian and American media have been particularly good at.
