New Cuban Journalism: How the Independent Media Rebelled Against the Propaganda Machine

Wednesday, April 25, 2018, 12-1 PM

Barbara Maseda

John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships at Stanford

In the last ten years the unprecedented emergence of media, outside the control of Cuba's Communist Party, has come to the rescue of actors, issues and approaches that for decades had been made invisible for decades by the triumphalistic narrative of the state-run media.

This talk will cover the context that made that emergence possible, the outlets found in this new landscape, as well as the challenges posed to their existence by the lack of a favorable legal framework, bad quality internet services, difficult access to funding and sustainable business models, difficult access to sources and reliable data, among many other problems.

Barbara Maseda is a Cuban journalist currently spending a year in Stanford University as a John S. Knight Journalism fellow.
