Response to not fooled (Reply #4)

5. It is.

Plus, the media in Latin America tend to be in politicians' faces a lot more than our media is here.

Part of that may have to do with some differences between us and our neighbors to the south as far as public mindsets go.

We (generally) prefer to be told that everything's normal; Latin Americans, on the other hand, have stopped believing that about their countries so long ago, they expect - even demand - that their media tell them exactly how bad things are.

That said, Latin media does have one real problem though: they tend to be owned by ultra-conservative business/agrarian interests, such that right-wing wrongdoing usually gets lighter treatment than left-wing wrongdoing (or even alleged wrongdoing) does.
