Carrie Duncan has run the no-holds-barred guide to Mexicos Baja California region for the past 10 years, receiving mountains of hate mail from folks who are offended by everything from the papers name to headlines like Bus Crashes, 12 Mexicans Snuffed.
Despite that, shes developed a loyal following from the many Yanks who vacation in the area, who crack up over articles like the recent piece on whale watching which featured a photo of a floating human rear end spitting out water like a whale.
Duncan feels newspapers in the States could learn a lot from her papers anti-P.C. stance especially since the humor brings in tons of readers, and, therefore, advertising dollars.
She says too many U.S. publishers cave in to political correctness and end up with a bland publication, but, in her words, We dont have to be held hostage to a few upset readers.
