Alfredo Corchado is an award-winning Mexican-American journalist who has covered Mexico for many years, and is currently the Mexico City bureau chief of The Dallas Morning News. He specializes in covering the drug wars and the U.S. Mexico border, writing stories on such topics as drug cartels and organized crime, corruption among police and government officials, and the spread of drug cartels into U.S. cities.
The Nieman Foundation for Journalism has noted that Corchado has "described mass shootouts that no one else writes about, obtained and described videos of revenge executions, and revealed how the few arrested for the mass murder of women in Juárez are often innocent stooges." Howard Campbell, author of Drug War Zone, has called Corchado "the top American journalist covering Mexico today" whose "knowledge of the Mexican political system, the drug trade, and modern Mexican society is non-pareil." Corchado currently lives in Mexico City.
