Online Discussion on The News Media in Puerto Rico


TRUE THAT!! … “There are many reasons why Puerto Rico, after more than 122 years, continues to be a colony of the United States. The island’s media system is one of the factors that most contributes to maintaining this relationship of dependence and subjugation. The book The News Media in Puerto Rico: Journalism in Colonial Settings and in Times of Crises, by Federico Subervi-Vélez, Sandra Rodríguez-Cotto and Jairo Lugo-Ocando documents this reality and exposes it with a variety of sources, including opinions offered by 60 prominent journalists from the Island regarding the challenges faced by the news media, their profession, and journalism education in Puerto Rico.”

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
