12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: Mexican Media In Mexico, lawmakers recently passed a measure to allow federal authorities to investigate and prosecute cases of murdered journalists, taking it out of the hands of state authorities, who are historically more corrupt. The bill, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists, will implement a constitutional amendment passed in 2012. This comes as journalists have stepped up nationwide demonstrations to protest ongoing attacks against media workers as the country marks the one-year anniversary of a law intended to protect both journalists and human rights defenders. But as FSRN's Andalusia Knoll reports, challenges remain in fully implementing the law.
