Sean Penn on his El Chapo interview: “My article has failed”

Last weekend, Sean Penn temporarily imploded the internet with his Rolling Stone story of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the notorious Mexican dwelm boss who along with Penn met in his secret jungle lair early October before he got caught by the authorities on January 9 . This week, Penn was conspicuously silent on the matter, refusing to talk to the press or a single jet thundered with laughter at all the brilliant invite since created in his honor. But on Sunday, in an interview with Charlie Rose for 60 minutes, Penn will eventually weigh in on the Rolling Stone piece, the ensuing outrage, and if he have anything to do with El Chapo’s research.

A preview clip of the show will be broadcast on CBS this morning on Friday unveiled Penn is not responsible for El Chapo fear not apologetic about the ethical questions that arise when Rolling Stone announced that the final Guzman approval have felt given to the story. “There is this myth about the visits we have made, I and my colleagues with El Chapo, it was-as the Attorney General of Mexico-quoted’essential ‘to his arrest,” Penn has Rose. “We have a few weeks earlier … on October 2, in a place not near where he is imprisoned with him.” “So as far as you know, have you had nothing to do and your visit has nothing to do with his recapture?” Rose asked. “Here are the things we know,” said Penn. “We know that the Mexican government … she was clearly very humbled by the idea that someone has found it has done for them. Well, no one has found him before they did. We did not -We are not smarter than the DEA or the Mexican intelligence service. We have a contact in which we were able to facilitate an invitation ‘.

According to Penn, it is the purpose of the interview was not only to food and taco shots of tequila in Mexican jungle with a known fugitive. Instead, it was a global discussion about the war on drugs that did not happen turn. “I have a pity that the whole discussion on this article ignore its purpose, which was to try to contribute to this debate on policy in the war on drugs,” said Penn.

“Let’s go to the big picture of what we all want,” he continued. “We want everybody this drug problem to stop. We all want to stop them-the murders in Chicago. We’re consumers. Whether you agree with Sean Penn or not, there is a complicity there. And if you’re in the moral duty or on the far left, like many of your children do these drugs just as much. And how much time they spend in the last week since this article comes out, talk about what? One percent? I think it is generous. ”

Under these conditions, Penn believe the article was not successful. “My article fail,” he told Rose. “Let me make it clear, my article failed.” Despite this, he still considered himself a journalist and said that many came from the resultant protests by fellow reporters who were jealous of his unparalleled access to El Chapo. “If you wanted to get the story that every journalist in the world, there is a large part of the green-eye samples to come give you a kiss,” said Penn. “At the same time, you know, if … journalists who want to say I am not a journalist-good, I want the license that says they see a journalist.”

Although, as noted Rose, Penn may concern greater than affecting journalistic envy, as the Mexican government and those in El Chapo’s cartel which can believe the actor is responsible for fear their leader.

“Do you believe that the Mexican government released this partly because they wanted to see your debt and you’re in danger?” Asked Rose. “Yes,” says Penn. “They wanted to encourage the cartel to sit you in their sights?” Rose asked, incredulous. “Yes,” says Penn. “Are you afraid for your life?” Asked Rose. “No,” says Penn.
