Introduction to Mexican News Media
Mexico gave the birth to the American press in 1539. However, the first national newspaper of the country — Gaceta de México – published its first issue in 1722. The early Mexican newspaper, which published news related to business and society, could not survive for more than six months.
In 1821 when Mexico claimed independence, the newspaper industry witnessed a substantial rise but most of the publications of that time highly spoke in euphemisms. In 1838, El Ensayo Literario started publishing in Puebla, El Ateneo Mexicano joined in 1840 and El Liceo Mexicano in 1844.
La Estrella Polar de los Amigos Deseosos de la Ilustración, which published for the first time in 1822 from Guadalajara, was the highest selling newspaper of that time along with La Concordia Yucateca (1829), El Federalista (1831) and La Aurora de la Libertad (1831).
Despite deep roots, Mexico is not among a few safe countries for media professionals, especially for journalists that cover crime and political corruption. The local level reporters are troubled the most and get frequent death threats, according to the Reporters Without Borders.
The non-profit NGO adds that most of these crimes against journalists usually go unpunished in Mexico.
TV Azteca and Televisa are among the most prominent news channels. The broadcasting media of Mexico is hugely populated by radio channels, with more than 1,400 regional and national radio stations. Some of these stations, which operate on the northern country border, broadcast their content in the US markets as well.
The print media is quite diverse in Mexico. Different newspapers reflect different political ideologies. The high selling national dailies promote sensationalism in the news content.
As far as the news websites are concerned, Mexico has a huge market of the internet business in comparison to the other Latin American countries. According to the Internet World Stats, as many as 85 million people had access to the internet by 2017. It counts to almost 65 percent of the total Mexican population.
Facebook is the commonly used social network among the Mexicans and thus, most of the news websites and newspapers have their presence on this social media network.

Mexico has become a risky country for the journalists over the years. Crime and political violence has always been high in the region and the criminals are much more organised and sociopolitical than the state officials in some states. The journalists practicing in Mexico get frequent death threats.
Mexican journalists also face a challenging environment for the access to the information in case they voice diversity. Not many of the media organisations dare to comment on the quality of country’s democracy. In 2018, the United Nations released a statement in partnership with the Inter-American Commission for Human Rights the state of Mexican media is quite complex.
Some of media organisations act as a watchdog and does investigative journalism. However, courageous reporting is mostly restricted to the independent as well as alternative media. Killings of the journalists and anti-press violence in broad daylight is currently on the rise in the country.

Currently, La prensa, El Financiero, Excelsior, El Sol de Mexico, El Heraldo de Mexico and Esto are among the most prominent newspapers in Mexico.
