    Media Development 2016-3 Editorial

    Today, profound changes in the newspaper and journalism industries together with technological convergence risk “seeing much weaker local news media that do less in terms of holding power to account and keeping people informed, less to encourage civic and political engagement, and less to foster community integration than they have in the past.”

  • Networking for a stronger journalism

    Networking for a stronger journalism
    James Carey, a communication and journalism scholar who taught at the University of Illinois and then Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, often highlighted how communication (and for that matter transportation) policies that privileged speed, efficiency, quantity, low cost, and conquering space did so at the expense of the local.

  • Local media and digital frontiers: The Malaysian conundrum

     Local media and digital frontiers: The Malaysian conundrum

    Observers of the Malaysian media environment will notice two distinctive features of the mainstream media (television, radio, print). First, that there is heavy political party involvement and investment in the media and, second, that there has not been a history or tradition of local or regional media, untouched by the state or national-level political parties.

    Local media and digital frontiers

    The continued dominance of traditional journalism practice in the Swazi media landscape is under threat from two recent developments: new media and community media. The two are on the verge of introducing the bottom-up approach, interactivity and activism sought by many Swazis, especially marginalised, voiceless groups. Major hurdles prevent the realization of the opportunities they offer citizens, however, because of several challenges.

  • “Not your father’s local media”, o cómo la revolución digital cambió (casi) todas las referencias

    “Not your father’s local media”, o cómo la revolución digital cambió (casi) todas las referencias

    En 1988 una fábrica de autos intentó adelantarse a su mercado con un eslogan que no le funcionó en términos de ventas −la empresa cerró unos años después−, pero marcó la cultura popular estadounidense con todas las variantes imaginables. “This is not your father’s Oldsmobile” (este no es el Oldsmobile de tu papá), permanece como una frase pegajosa para describir una disrupción; es decir, una rotura o interrupción brusca.

  • Who loves local news?

    Who loves local news?

    In the United States, it’s no longer newsworthy to say that there is a crisis in the news industry. From coast to coast, countless newspapers closed, ceased print publication, or slashed their staffs in the past decade. NPR affiliates nationwide are struggling to reach millennials and are clinging desperately to pastiche reruns of Car Talk to keep donations flowing.

  • Dominio o seducción

    Dominio o seducción
    La literatura de todos los tiempos nos ha  provisto valiosas lecciones para comprender la realidad del mundo en que vivimos. Será conveniente seguir  reconociendo que, muchas veces, la ficción es una muy adecuada manera de representar la realidad brindando luces para descubrir los ocultos caminos de las ambiciones humanas, su solidaridad y su  miseria y cómo se genera esa comunicación en nuestra  sociedad.
