What really thwarts the quality of journalism [in Latin America] is the unpreparedness of journalists, the poor training they receive during college. Most of them graduate with a journalism degree but are unable to write a good news piece. They do not know how to read, or to prepare an interview. Back in the day, our professors used to tell us that every journalist must be reading all day, even on vacation. So, the root of our problem is bad education, like most of our Latin American problems.
Alma Delia Fuentes, Deputy Editor of CNN México, in an interview to Esther Vargas of the industry blog Clases de Periodismo (in Spanish).
