Media has a right to its advocacy, and in fact should advocate, but to strap on a gun and say, ‘try me,’ is not being a journalist. It means being a thug.
The Tulfo brothers say they are capable of violence, but that they are “hard men with soft hearts” who stand for the underdog.
The reason the public runs to the media and not to government is because institutions have failed to serve. That the Tulfos exist and are called heroes for their vigilantism demonstrates the extent of that institutional failure.
