Wanted: 100 New Friends in L.A. Area

by Narco News supporter Tuesday, Apr. 06, 2004 at 11:42 AM

Wanted: 100 New Friends in Los Angeles (and environs) to organize and attend The Fund for Authentic Journalism’s first fundraising event, and the announcement of the 2004 scholarship recipients....

April 5th, 2004

Please Distribute Widely

Dear Colleague,

Adam Saytanides, graduate of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism (2002), of the Narco News School of Authentic Journalism (2003), and professor for the upcoming 2004 session, has written this report, now on Narco News...

Giordano Wins Upton Sinclair Award for Press Freedom

With Krassner, Flanders, Goodman, Robbins, Invited to Receive Award on May 15th in the Port of Los Angeles


The award sponsors, the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California, South Bay Chapter, and the San Pedro Alternative Media Council, we're also nice enough to send a plane ticket to somewhere in a country called América. So I will go to Los Angeles on May 15th to accept it and immediately share it with every single journalist who has participated in the Narco News project, without whom nobody would be giving me any awards.

Additionally, this sort of thing doesn’t happen every day, and I want to make the best of it to benefit the entire project and its future. I’ve consulted with Andrew Grice, treasurer of The Fund for Authentic Journalism, who will accompany me to Los Angeles and San Pedro for the awards ceremony, where I’ve been asked to give a 25 minute speech. There, in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, The Fund for Authentic Journalism will host a gala fundraising event on Sunday, May 16th (location and time to be announced) specifically to allow us to invite more Authentic Journalism scholars to this year’s School of Authentic Journalism.

If you haven't yet heard about the 2004 School of Authentic Journalism session, in Cochabamba and the Chapare of Bolivia, read about it (and meet the faculty) here:


If, kind reader, you live in the Los Angeles area, or will be in the region in mid-May, or have friends and allies there, please help The Fund to organize an event, be part of our team at the Uppie awards ceremony at the Warner Grande Theater in San Pedro, forward this alert to everybody near, and invite good people to contribute to that event to make wishes come true for more J-School scholars of the quality of those who are requesting applications – via solicitud@narconews.com – and who are working very hard, filling them out, right now.

Of everything we do here at Narco News, the J-School is the project that most concretely changes lives and destinies of the leaders of the journalistic vanguard in the Spanish, Portuguese, and English languages, and builds a foundation for the future of the Authentic Journalism renaissance. An award is just an award. But if we can, together, turn it into a hand up and a fighting chance for the next generation of Authentic Journalists, then it will maximize its purpose.

There, at that event, we will announce the winners of the 2004 Narco News School of Authentic Journalism scholarships.

Wanted: 100 New Friends in Los Angeles (and environs) to organize and attend The Fund for Authentic Journalism’s first fundraising event, and the announcement of the 2004 scholarship recipients. If you are one of those auténticos or auténticas angelinas, please contact Andrew Grice at info@authenticjournalism.org and lend a hand. Or, why wait for the gala event? Just go ahead and give, because the journalist you save will be informing you for years to come of news and information that, if not for his and her hard work, you will not otherwise know. You can do that right now, via this link:


People like me don’t get awards. It is you, everyone who supported us and brought Narco News back to life, who can savor this special occasion and, together, make it count for something, and someone and ones, more.

From somewhere in a country called América,

Al Giordano

Publisher, Narco News

President, The School of Authentic Journalism
