Puerto Rico: The Unwritten Rule of the Puerto Rican Press

Categories: Caribbean, Latin America, Puerto Rico (U.S.), Citizen Media, Media & Journalism

Luisa García Pelatti talks [1] [es] in her blog Sin comillas (Without Quotation Marks) about the alleged illegal use of government funds by the newspaper El Vocero [2] [es] (The Spokesman) that was denounced by the newspaper El Nuevo Día [3] [es] (The New Day). García, a former employee of El Vocero, said the following:

What El Nuevo Día published […] is, basically, what those of us who were working there already knew. […] What is surprising is that the newspaper broke an unwritten law among the Puerto Rican press: to not say anything about the competition, neither good, nor bad.
