Análisis del efecto del periodismo constructivo en el pensamiento y comportamiento de los periodistas.

Contenido principal del artículo

Andrea Grijalva


El periodismo ha representado el mundo con un “lente distorsionado” enfocándose en los problemas, en lugar de priorizar una perspectiva equilibrada que incluya las soluciones. Como respuesta, se desarrolló el periodismo constructivo, el cual ha sido implementado por periodistas y medios de comunicación. Este trabajo analiza cómo ha cambiado la mente y las rutinas de los profesionales después de transitar de una perspectiva tradicional a una constructiva, donde los valores periodísticos se han fortalecido.
