Chilean online media: differences in some journalistic practices over traditional print media



This research aims to identify the main changes that occur with technological advances in the working system in some Chilean digital media. Participant observations were made in three Chilean digital newspapers: emol.com, lanacion.cl and lasegunda.com to know in situ the work routines used by professionals. The valuable information obtained in the ethnomethodological study was contrasted with in-depth interviews to editors of these three media: Sebastian Campaña (emol. com), Juan Carlos González (lasegunda.com) and Samuel Romo (lanación.cl). The editorial meeting, the editor’s job and his relationship with journalists and some techniques of reporting and writing of these online media journalists was mainly observed. It is concluded that they have forgotten many of the traditional journalistic practices used in the print media in the country, resulting in a decline of the quality of online publications.
