For someone who grew up in Miami (and still lives in
South Florida), it is strange to see The Miami
Spanish-language edition described this way, for
hardcore gusanos despise El Herald, see it as an
of (gringo) outsiders to coopt them (for mere profit),
and drive with bumber stickers that read "No Creo en
El Herald."  Perhaps this explains the passage above,
for surely a truly "official organ" of the "gusano
mafia" would have had no trouble whitewashing Sr.
Novo's career.
