Mexico City media landscape has experienced a rapid and profound change over the last two decades. Despite the few complaints that TV titans such as TV Azteca and Televisa are more centered on assisting the official government view rather than be involved in critical investigative journalism, the Mexican world of television was once dominated by Televisa. Relying on government ad revenue as well as state owned organizations has become a thing of the past. Mexico City occasionally dibs and dabs into political activity, however, a new era of media channels is unfolding to elucidate the nation’s political trends.
