Missing Newspapers

Both the El Heraldo, and La Prensa newspaper websites have been unavailable since mid day yesterday with no explanation. Both of these papers are owned by Jorge Canahuati Larach, and support wholeheartedly the de facto government. Jorge Canahauti Larach, through his bank, FICOHSA, financed the hiring of Lanny Davis to lobby for the de facto government in the United States, information revealed in the Senate lobbyist registry database. While their websites are on separate servers, its often been the case that problems on one site manifest as problems on the other.

Both sites have been up all day yesterday and today with no problems - I am accessing both now from within Honduras.

Your links are wrong!

Try El Heraldo and La Prensa

Neither is available to me in the United States.

Thanks, Pete; your links work. What that means is that yesterday they changed their DNS entries and formerly working ways of referencing their sites no longer work.

I've always used the links I sent you - they've always worked.

The sites worked for me no problem all day yesterday and today. There is surely enough going on without making something out of nothing, don't you think?

Mark, from day one media sources have been under wrack and have become unavailablw, sometimes clearly as a result of stategic manipulation. So noting when we do not have access and what has become inaccessible is important. As is adding new links from helpful readers like Pete (thanks). And explaining when possible what the technical problem was. Which can help head off thinkng there is more to an outage.
