NAMING ALTERNATIVE MEDIA : UNDERGROUND

  • Underground media is synonymous with underground press and underground journalism. All these terms refer to the ideologically liberal journalism during the 1960s and 1970s that revolted against the journalistic norms of objectivity and appeared in the form of independently owned, published, and distributed print media”1).
  • Raul Trejo defines the underground press, born in the United States, “as a response made by the young americans to the bourgeois press and as giving voice to the 'Beat' and 'Hippie' movements since the 1950's. This press, called 'savage' by some authors, appears in places where the protests of young people from the middle class […] start to produce effervescence” 2)
