Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The fact that various elements of the privately owned, U.S. based press are negative or positive towards a particular political candidate (in the U.S. or foreign country) is a given.  That doesn't equate to U.S. Government interference in another country's internal affairs.

"The White House maintained that the an official policy is not to intervening in other countries' elections. However, this rule has always been violated when it concerns US interest and Mexico is no exception. (more below)"  

"Awww....American propaganda, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".

One could get the idea from these statements and all in between that the White House controls the U.S. press.  I've never (maybe naively) heard anything like that alleged in a mainstream forum. I always enjoy a good conspiracy theory, however, so entertain me.

I happen to agree that AMLO is now officially out of line and, as stated by Mexican Government officials, illegally so.  His move to bring Mexico City to its knees and influence the IFE tribunal's decision by blocking main avenues is nothing but blackmail from a candidate who received only 34-35% of the total vote. AMLO would probably have no chance in a two party run off election.  At one time, I sriously thought that he might be good for Mexico, but the more I see of his antics the more he looks like dictator material. I suspect that if a 100% recount were made, he would still be unsatisfied if it didn't give him the Presidency.   From Mexico:
