MEXICO: The Real Mexico

In Mexico, as in all countries, who controls the media is an important and at times arcane problem. I have long wondered about Televisa. Jose Hernandez says:

"Regarding Televisa, I believe that they are trying to become more objective in their news coverage; probably not because they want to but because they have been put in that position by TV Azteca - the new darling of Fox's government. I believe Televisa has lost its influence with the federal government to TV Azteca, and Televisa is now trying to find its new role in Mexican politics. I never thought that Televisa would change, but it seems to be happening."
