Risks for Democracy

In the last Mexican Elections, we testified how political parties, conservative forces or any with economic power can manipulate the media. With untruthful information , the goal was to attack the political opponent, damaging the democracy. ( Mexico’s Chapter in the Saga of Election Disinformation ).

The news outlets in Mexico, one of their main advertising client is the goverment in turn

Journalism must be free to bark at power when it is abusive or corrupt, and to uncover activities that have been hidden or distorted by governments, corporations or even incumbents media news outlets.

Incumbents News Outlets

Even the incumbent media in Mexico is aligned with partisan views, because the advertising ties of the business.

The red circle

In Mexico we have a “red circle” of news anchors, commentators, opinnion leaders, centralizing the point of view and “political correctness” for the general population.
