Links and Disclosures

The Narco News Bulletin works to tell the truth. We call it as we see it. Yet we are conscious that it's our truth. The whole truth can only be constructed by the participation of the people. Thus, we strive to work together, to collaborate, with your truth and the truths of others, "to make a bigger truth."

Narco News is a project in authentic journalism. We do not accept advertising. We do not charge a price for our reports.

Narco News has no bank account. During our legal battle against Banamex-Citigroup in the New York Supreme Court, we did have a defense fund, titled Drug War on Trial, exclusively for our legal expenses. We were victorious in that battle, but are still in debt and preparing a countersuit to collect our damages from this frivolous narco-lawsuit.

In sum, Narco News makes no profit, raises no funds, and seeks to keep free speech free from economic pressures.

The annual budget of Narco News -- $270 U.S. dollars for the website -- is paid for by our publisher, Al Giordano.
