Front Cover
Institute of International Education, Jan 1, 1995 - Journalism - 112 pages
This research report assesses the state of the press and the needs for journalism training in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Mexico. It is based upon discussions in these countries during 1992 and 1993 with reporters, editors, publishers, broadcasters, broadcast owners, government officials, business people, and scholars. Separate chapters provide brief surveys of the recent history and current conditions of the media in each of the countries. A summary chapter examines issues that are significant across all four countries. These include: (1) the relationship between government and the media; (2) economics and the media; (3) the role of investigative reporting; (4) coverage of critical policy decisions; and (5) the profession of journalism. The report reviews programs based in the United States that provide training and assistance to the Latin American media and makes suggestions for improving these programs. (LH)
