Alfabetización Mediática, Periodismo Ciudadano e Investigaciones en Nicaragua

 Un programa nuevo dirigido por el Centro Internacional para Periodistas (ICFJ, por sus siglas en inglés) va a ampliar las capacidades de los periodistas ciudadanos y las organizaciones noticiosas para identificar, recopilar y producir noticias e información en Nicaragua, un país donde los medios independientes y los periodistas son constantemente censurados. Debido al continuo cierre del espacio para noticias independientes, muchos periodistas han huido del país, dejando un vacío de información.

Media Literacy, Citizen Journalism and Investigation in Nicaragua

A new program led by the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) will expand the capacities of citizen journalists and news organizations to identify, collect, and produce news and information in Nicaragua, a country where independent media and journalists are constantly censored. Due to the limited space for independent news, many journalists have fled the country, leaving a gap in information. Nicaraguan citizens try to fill this gap by reporting the news through social media.
