El Periódico is a daily Guatemalan newspaper founded by José Rubén Zamora on November 6, 1996. Considered one of Central America's leading independent journalists, Zamora had left his previous paper, Siglo Veintiuno, earlier in the year after a disagreement with the board of directors. He then founded Periódico, funded by the donations of 125 citizens who supported his stand on press freedom. One year later, it was purchased by the owners of Prensa Libre, Guatemala's best-selling newspaper. In 2001, the Periódico offices were attacked by a group of fifty protesters after reporting on alleged corruption in the staff of Communications Minister Luis Rabbé. The crowd attempted to force the building's doors and set it on fire, and Zamora was burned in effigy. According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, police took more than forty minutes to respond and made no arrests. More information...
