• 墨西哥的公民新聞與民主化

    Sallie Hughes是美國邁阿密大學傳播學系的助理教授,前陣子出了一本叫做《 Newsrooms in Conflict:Journalism and the Democratization of Mexico》的書,在談墨西哥近年來的新聞媒體民主化過程,廣受好評

    一份當地的報紙為這本書下了這樣的註解
    Hughes gives a name to the new autonomous, assertive and politically diverse Mexican journalism that has taken over (though not completely) from the authoritarian model that dominated for most of the 20th century - "civic journalism." It has the potential, she writes, "to enhance civic participation and government accountability to citizens, (which are) the civic objectives expressed by its principal practitioners."
    我沒看過這本書,不過正在聽她之前在芝加哥大學所給的演講。照慣例,以下播放PODCAST,且有VIDEO可下載

    不過,相較於Hughes給予墨西哥新聞媒體民主化的肯定,香港獨立媒體的領男,則有不同看法。他說:
    由Reforma News Group辦的Reforma集團經已成為全墨西哥最出名的報章,原因是他們敢作敢為的報道風格,特別是針對政府貪污的醜聞。然而,Reforma的運作離不開資本主義市場經營的邏輯,即inmedia一直討論ohmynews時提到的商業模式。可是,最諷刺的是墨西哥的市場基本上並不自由,改革者集團之所以發展神速,很大情況上跟政府的政策有關。
