<meta name="DC.contributor.referee I" content="REPORT I: "The banking sector and media ownership: the case of Ecuador". The article rigorously examines one of the most difficult issues in the field of communications: the links between journalism, politics and economics, which decisively influence the freedom of information. The author delves into the privileges gained by the financial sector with the collusion of the political powers in order to present a distorted reality that only favours certain sectors. The article also highlights the need of media independence in order to make democracy work with full guarantees. The methodology of the work is appropriate and ensures the reliability of the results. In addition, the data provided help to better understand the media landscape.Therefore, I recommend the publication of the work.Xosé Soengas-Pérez - Professor of Audiovisual Communication University of Santiago de Compostela "/>

<meta name="DC.contributor.referee II" content="REPORT II:Ecuador has experienced a revolutionary turn since the arrival of Rafael Correa to the presidency. The change in national policy has had many objectives that have affected the national media system. This major change has been framed largely in a wide-ranging constitutional reform carried out in 2008, which included, among other important reforms, a disposition that obliges the financial power to withdraw from the media sector.For many years, many critical authors have been denouncing the obscene links between the financial sector and the media system as well as the harmful consequences on democracy. For many years, in the supposedly most advanced democracies, these same authors have been asking the political powers to restrict this penetration, without any success. The inclusion of this article in the Ecuadorian constitutional reform, which is known by very few, represents an unprecedented move that once again highlights the inability of the European and American political class to impose these types of measures to their corporate media.This article offers an excellent description of the situation and structure of Ecuador’s media system, its links with the financial power and the political decisions taken in this regard. This work is rigorous, detailed, relevant, and constitutes an essential reference for comparative research. Therefore I recommend its publication. (More – full report). Nuria Almirón

<meta name="DC.description.abstract" content="ABSTRACT: With the referendum called by President Rafael Correa in 2011, concludes a complex stage in the history of Ecuador, to take the financial power out of media ownership by law, supported by ratification at the polls. Through twelve years of intense fighting since 1999, when the banking crisis were to indicate its decisive presence in the media landscape of the country, two distinct phases can be described: one between 1999–2006, a period in which the Bank, despite its internal crisis – or by itself, using newspapers, radio and television to wash his image, is expanding its presence in the mainstream media, and another, since 2007, of high interest and very novel, in which political power acts intensively to remove that presence."/>
