IN MEMORIAN OF CARLOS MENDO, A GREAT JOURNALIST

2010-08-23_1953

A few years ago I wrote a very short post after reading a brilliant analysis of Carlos Mendo about the US elections.

Today I saw that my blog-meter started to get hundreds of visits linking to this post from Google.

2010-08-23_1943

I went to Google and I put just his name in…

And the explanation of so much traffic was there: Carlos Mendo died today and many people were looking for more information about this master of journalists.

Mendo was UPI director in Spain and director of EFE, working also for ABC and El Pais.

Carlos Soria and Esteban Morán were old friends of him.

I am sure that they are very sad.

Like many readers fans of such a great journalists.

He was a gentleman, a happy person with many friends and a terrific expert on US politics.

He was 77.

Rest in pace.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
