MONJE, Daniela Inés; RIVERO, Ezequiel Alexander  and  ZANOTTI, Juan Martín. The crisis of journalism and state retraction policies in Argentina, Brazil and Chile. Comun. soc [online]. 2020, vol.17, e7622.  Epub Jan 27, 2021. ISSN 0188-252X.

This article aims to study how the ownership structure of the media system and the role of the State are linked to the deterioration of journalistic work and the exercise of freedom of expression. From the Political Economy of Journalism and the discussions on the right to information, a comparative study is proposed to contrast the situation in Brazil, Argentina and Chile between 2016 and 2018. It is concluded that the high concentration in the three media systems, along with the retraction of the State as regulator and content producer, deepen a crisis that threatens journalistic activity.

Keywords : Journalism; Political economy; Freedom of Expression; Crisis; Media concentration.
