Dominican Republic economist and historian to head Latin investigative journal

If heading to Santo Domingo, perhaps you can look for a copy of “La lupa sin trabas” (The Magnifying Glass without Obstacles) which is expected to be on Dominican news-stands by Tuesday 14 August. The first issue of the magazine focuses on the new Danilo Medina government and its promises to not be complacent about corruption in government.

{FILE IMAGE – see photo} Economist and historian Bernardo Vega will be the editor of the new journal. Upon announcing the journal, he said that now, in his retirement years, he had the challenge of chronicling the past or making a contribution to the future and has chosen the latter. Vega served as the editor of El Caribe at a time when the newspaper was known for its well-researched investigative economic reports.

Fernando Hasbun, now at Noticias SIN, inspired the idea. He says he is working on launching an all-news TV channel, with 24 hours of news and commentaries.

La lupa sin trabas will be published biweekly. The magazine will get its official launch next Tuesday 14 August with an event at the Hotel Embajador.

Columnists for the new magazine are:

Roberto Alvarez, Franklin Baez Brugal, Pedro Delgado Malagon, Roberto Despradel, Flavio Dario Espinal, Rosario Espinal, Alejandro Fernandez W., Freddy Ginebra, Carmen Imbert Brugal and Wilfredo Lozano

The journalists are Bernardo Vega, Alicia Ortega, Panky Corcino, Edwin Ruiz, Ana Mitila Lora, Nicanor Leyba, Lery Laura Pina, Mercedes Gonzalez, Gabriela Read and Felivia Mejia.
