Abstract

Recent readjustments in power relations between actors and levels of Mexican government, the upsurge of violence in many areas of the country, and the changes within the newsrooms have posed new challenges for the exercise of a free press. These transformations make useful revisiting Hughes’ argument (2006) about the possibility of the emergence of a ‘civic’ press. Firstly, Hughes’ book is discussed from the perspective of literature on Mexican transition, which explored institutional changes and public opinion, but leaving asid the relevance of media in this process. Secondly, we discuss new challenges for the study of mass media in non- Western democracies, pointing out the research agenda introduced by Hughes’ book. Thirdly, we offer a critical view of journalism models proposed by the author, emphasizing the contextual conditions that have weakened the efforts to establish a civic journalism within the newsrooms. The text concludes with Hughes’ response to the discussion. This text is product of the debate that took place on October 29th, 2018 in the framework of the Interdisciplinary Seminar on Studies on the Press and Power of cide’s Journalism program.
