NAMING ALTERNATIVE MEDIA : COUNTER-INFORMATION

  • “originating with the late Pio Baldelli (1977), but still very much current (Vitelli & Rodríguez Esperón (2004)) is […] a term framed very much within the journalism arena, where ‘information’ is used as a synonym for ‘news’. Undoubtedly, the mission to fill in the gaps and distortions in hegemonic news sources and empirical specifics is an important one, as mainstream war and ecological news coverage repeatedly demonstrates. Yet we need much more still than punch-for-punch counter-information, and than an information strategy whose agenda is dictated by the need to respond rather than radically reframe” 1).
