RODELO, Frida Viridiana. Periodismo en entornos violentos: el caso de los periodistas de Culiacán, Sinaloa. Comun. soc [online]. 2009, n.12, pp. 101-118. ISSN 0188-252X.
The article presents an analysis of the limitations in the practice of journalism in a region of Mexico that has a high incidence of violence -the city of Culiacan, in the northwest. It argues that violence as much as journalistic limitations are associated with the weakness of the Mexican State. Finally, it proposes a category of 'cautious journalism' based in the local journalists ' practices -journalism about sensitive topics, defined by economic and security terms.
Keywords : freedom of the press; media coverage of violence; journalism in dangerous environments; news safety.
