The Chilean Press Since Allende.
Knudson, Jerry W.
Based on interviews with 19 Chilean editors, government officials, heads of professional associations, and journalism education directors, this paper deals with the role of the press in Chile and with its future under the current military government. Following a review of the events concerning press control and censorship that followed the overthrow and murder of President Salvador Allende in 1973, the paper considers the relationship of the military government with each of the newspapers and magazines currently published in Chile and also examines the role of that country's radio and television stations. The paper concludes with a discussion of the future of the Chilean press under the new constitution. (FL)
