Where have the reporters been who wrote this story for the last 50 years? The entire fabric of "norteņo" music centered in the northern states of Sinaloa, Chihuahua, Sonora, Baja California, and others has ALWAYS been infused with the "heroics" of the drug traffickers.

Popular bands such as Los Tigres del Norte and others have for years been extolling the supposed virtues of cutthroat gangsters in northern Mexico.

This is old news, my friends, and these reporters are reporting on a fact of life which has been existent in Mexican culture and society for many decades.
