LUGO-ORTIZ, Lourdes. Convergence, emotion and crisis: Journalists in Puerto Rico evaluate their field in the XXI Century. Comun. soc [online]. 2012, n.18, pp. 107-133. ISSN 0188-252X.
This article explores the challenges faced by journalists in Puerto Rico. Based on surveys, the work reports that respondents see their trade is being influenced by two main processes: one involves an economic crisis that has had a negative impact on the resources available for newsroom operations. The second involves a drive for immediacy in online news coverage, which often sacrifices the integrity of media content.
