    Interactivity is a factor on which cyber journalism is based and summarizes participation options between a user and the medium, a user with other users, and a user with editors. In this study, we focus on the latter in three countries-Colombia, Peru, and Ecuador-, which have been identified owing to their technological gap and the emerging importance of online communication for their respective societies. Through 35 in-depth interviews with journalists from these countries, we analyzed the concept of interactivity of these professionals and their relationship with users. The results revealed that the journalists positively valued civic contributions as a space for diagnosis, although they do not perceive its informational value, as they relate them to the context of opinions. These results verify the prevalence of journalism as strongly influenced by conventional offline production routines.

  • Consumo y confianza de los cibermedios en Perú. Un estudio sobre los estudiantes universitarios

    Ibáñez, D.B.; Freundt-Thurne, Úrsula; Montemayor, D.J.G.; Garzón, K.T.P; (Associacao Iberica de Sistemas e Tecnologias de Informacao, 2018-11)
    The virtual public space tends to be articulated as an extension of the contemporary public sphere. However, this is a process that is not being developed horizontally at a global level, there are countries that, like Peru, are identified by the predominant mediation of traditional media, as a consequence of the digital divide, according to which approximately half of the population is still not connected. This study presents the results of a survey of 720 university students in Peru, and our interest lies in describing aspects such as the relationship between trust and consumption of digital media in this country; the main characteristics required of an informative website; the most used interaction mechanisms; and, ultimately, how a group so relevant to Peruvian democracy, such as young university students, tends to channel their participation and experience online.

  • Construction of the Figure of "Artemio" and the Shining Path in the Journalistic Discourse of the Peruvian Newspapers El Comercio and La Republica

    Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (USC Annenberg Press, University Southern Cafifornia (USA), 2015-03-06)
    This article examines the journalistic construction of the figure of “Artemio,” one of the leaders of the terrorist organization Shining Path (Sendero Luminoso). The research focuses on his capture in 2012 by analyzing the journalistic discourse employed for this news in two mainstream Peruvian newspapers with different editorial lines, El Comercio and La República. We chose El Comercio and La República because both papers closely covered the events during the 1980s and ’90s at the peak of terrorist violence in Peru.
