Stephen Lendman Receives Mexico Media Award

Author Stephen Lendman who has written extensively for the alternative media including Global Research was granted the international award of the Mexican Press Club on December 8. 

“Distinguished guests attended, including Mexican and foreign journalists, media representatives, and others. A representative of Mexican President Filipe Calderon was present to deliver his prepared remarks, congratulating recipients. The event was extraordinary in all respects. Someone called it the truth-telling journalistic equivalent of Hollywood’s Oscars. All recipients got a certificate and medal draped over our heads like an Olympiad winner. Mostly Mexican and other Latin American journalists were honored. Two North Americans only were invited – Stephen Lendman from America and Mahdi Nazemroaya from Canada. They both got a chance to speak briefly on international television to all Latin America. Their remarks were translated. Stephen’s opening comment was:

Today, this gringo from north of the border is proud to call himself a periodista. Translated it means journalist. But for the Mexican Journalist Club it’s much more. They hold annual events. Next year will be their 60th anniversary. Each year they honor journalists for their contribution to truth. Stephen says he is truly overwhelmed, deeply honored, and extremely humbled to have been invited to participate. He’ll treasure what happened forever, won’t ever forget its meaning, and will try always to live up to it.

Lendman attended the event in Mexico City together with Global Research Associate Mahdi Darius Nazemoraya, who was granted an award for his work as War Correspondent for the alternative media.

Global Research extends its congratulations and best wishes to Stephen Lendman and Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya.
