Democracy and the Role of the Haitian Media
This study includes an explanation of the origins of the exiled Haitian press, the revolutionary character of the Haitian-American press, historical development of media in Haiti, and the relationship between media and the government from 1986 to 1999. It also contains a review of the literature and a theoretical base developed after reviewing the political systems of the press. It uses this most-difficult-case scenario to illustrate the changing pattern media may take in helping to create a democratic society.
