Luis Pedro Arellano Sarmiento works as both a reporter and university professor. Arellano discusses the experience of working at the Semanario Zeta the same year that its editor was assassinated. He notes how, aside from the danger to reporters, not much has changed to increase the freedom of expression, particularly from government officials. Believing that information has no owner, Arellano talks about how many reporters in Mexicali see no need for "exclusives," sharing news so that these can be published regardless of the type of media. At the same time, however, he notes many journalists base their reporting on who pays them, turning their work from journalism to propaganda. As a professor, he is convinced that journalists cannot sell their word and tries to teach that to young reporters. Similarly, Arellano teaches his students about the importance of verifying sources, so as to not damage the honor of those willing to share information.
