The presentation will address the current state of the mass media and journalism in Puerto Rico in the midst of the Island’s ongoing economic and political crises; it will bring together three areas of inquiry: political-economic factors that condition the operations of the Island’s mass media; opinions from sixty Puerto Rican journalists; and theoretical and methodological frameworks for future research related to media in colonial/post-colonial settings.
