abstract

  • The way to do journalism and the media themselves have changed not only their techniques and forms, but also the content. In particular, the pressure exerted by new technologies and the emergence of a society closely related with digital media are reshaping the world of information in a constant debate. For example, opposite to the complex phenomena derived from the immediacy is presented a new investigative journalism based on the accumulation and analysis of large amounts of data, which provides other visions of the present for now and for posterity. Thus, the traditional relationship between history and journalism experience substantial variations to take into account in ongoing or future investigations. No longer is a matter of archived media serving as sources, but a different vision of the information and its receiver society.
