We published ‘On media censorship, freedom of expression and the risks of journalism in Mexico’, first issue of a subseries about this topic, which will treat with it from various countries.
Abstract: We present a classification of the types of censorship of media to frame the various issues that journalism and freedom of expression face in Mexico, which mainly include the role of the State in preventing or enforcing censorship, the monopoly of a few corporate groups that control most of the mass media and dictate fixed editorial lines throughout all of them, the effect of violence on journalism and the issues that are emerging around the freedom of expression in social media.
