Media in Colombia

Colombia is a tough country for journalism. Human rights organizations like Amnesty International and Human Rights First, as well as professional journalist organizations such as Committee to Protect Journalists and Reporters Without Borders, rank Colombia as one of the four most dangerous countries for journalists. They also report that Colombia suffers one of the highest assassination and exile rates of any country in the world.

 

Gabriel García Márquez and other Latin American journalists have established the Fundación para un Nuevo Periodismo Iberoamericano to train the new generation of journalists. The Institute has regular seminars, workshops and other programs. (Ca. San Juan de Dios 3-121, Cartagena de Indias. Tel.: 5-664-5890, Fax: 5-664-5904, URL: www.fnpi.org).

 

The established media in Colombia play a major role in the government’s anti-terrorism program. We also list some of the independent media of the country. More listings for Colombia media may be found at Internet Public Library (www.ipl.org) or at World Press (www.worldpress.org).
