RIVERA MIR, Sebastián. "A Latin American News Agency Should be Formed..." International News Agency in Post-revolution Mexico, 1920-1934. Secuencia [online]. 2015, n.92, pp.167-192. ISSN 2395-8464.

This article analyzes the international information agencies linked to post-revolutionary governments, between 1920 and 1934. This topic has not previously been studied either by Mexican historiography or communication sciences. It aims to understand the complex news scenario that began to take shape during this period. The agencies were established while the United States was pursuing an intense propaganda campaign against the Mexican Revolution, and the governments of Mexico decided to counter this situation through a series of initiatives in which the agencies occupied an important space. In this context, the methodological decision was taken to use Jorge González's idea of constructing counter-hegemonic sources. The research identified over ten of this type of entities, and identified the mechanisms used by the Mexican State to achieve its objectives.

Keywords : information agencies; propaganda; correspondents; post-revolutionary governments; journalism.
