IKN Recommends: Latin America News Dispatch

Your humble scribe gets plenty of inquiries asking whether there’s a decent place for independent news on LatAm in the English language. While there are no real one-stop answers for that one, a service that I’ve recently discovered is Latin America News Dispatch. Here’s what they say about themselves…

“The Latin America News Dispatch produces original news stories about Latin America, the Caribbean, U.S. foreign policy, and Hispanics in the United States. Put simply, we dispatch news from the Western hemisphere.
The Dispatch was founded by four graduate students in the Global Joint Master’s program in Journalism and Latin American Studies at New York University. We strive to produce reliable, original reporting and we abide by traditional American journalistic ethics of independence and impartiality.”

…and from what I’ve seen, the people are living up to that billing well. The content updates daily and the range of coverage is good too, with reports from Central America, Brazil, Mexico, the Andean region and the Southern Cone all regular and all good at picking out the regional top stories They also offer a to-your-mailbox daily newsletter service which is accessed on this link.
So go visit Latin America News Dispatch and find out for yourself.
