In a highly polarized media landscape, how a journalism training program in Bolivia is finding political support
Bolivia’s media is highly polarized, but a new journalism training program is getting support from both sides. “Fundación para el Periodismo” is a one-year multimedia training program that intends to combine theory, practical training and work placement at both private and state-owned media outlets. The program is the first of its kind in Latin America. Mirjam Gehrke writes that news outlets in Bolivia often accuse each other of partisanship in their coverage, but have come together to support training a new generation of journalists.
