About the author

For the past 15 years Jorge Viera has worked as a news correspondent in the United States, Latin America, Spain and Russia. One of his stories was included among the 50 Most Striking by the History Channel. Viera has been one of the few to interview the President of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez. For many years he documented gang warfare in Los Angeles, California, and hurricanes that hit Florida and neighboring states to the Gulf of Mexico. He has worked undercover in Cuba and participated in coverage firsthand on the reality of life in Puerto Rico, the difficult days of Argentina of the so-called "corralito" as well as the attacks of September 11, among others. He has won five gold microphones, some of them for "Best On-Scene Report" and has three Emmy nominations. The Parliament of the Dominican Republic granted recognition as best international reporter, the same as that received the former President of Chile Ricardo Lagos.
