Colombia Reports’ bias and big breasts

Not sure this is PG rated but it sure is funny.

Despite what looks on the face of it to be a cheap sexist grab for attention this seems to be a legitimate site with interesting things to say about ASouth American politics.
 
Agreed.  I read it often in addition to reading the Colombian press in Spanish.  Adriaan Alsema does well for a guy who did not finish high school.   Though he is clearly a one-man show.  See below for more.

In this context, 'ideology' means that Colombia is not yet done with over half a century of violence and civil war.  It means that large numbers of Colombian civilians die violent deaths on a regular basis.   Some conservative Colombians and their para-military allies have taken it upon themselves to violently purge the Neo-Marxist substructure.  That means that rural social leaders have been dying like flies.  None of this is good for business.


From wikipedia:

Colombia Reports is a Colombian news website in English, founded in 2008 by Dutch journalist Adriaan Alsema and headquartered in Medellín. It is a "breast loving"<2> news publication that claims to be independent and not affiliated with any political or social organization.<3>

....

Controversies<edit>

Colombia Reports has never shied away from controversy, including editorials by Alsema about sex in Colombia<9> and interviews by staff with Colombian sex tourists.<10>

In April 2015, Colombia Reports' editor-in-chief Adriaan Alsema published a series of articles claiming that between 2003 and 2007, US military personnel and contractors had sexually abused many Colombian children. By June 2015, it was discovered that the source for these articles was faulty and Alsema was forced to retract those stories, expressing regret that he "felt responsible for having spread an urban myth".<11>




My comment?   Great journalism is typically the result of a team effort: skeptical colleagues, cranky editors, cautious publishers.
