Abstract

At this moment Paraguay’s Government is taking actions to rethink the concept of public media in the whole country. This article takes this context to
describe three basic perspectives to re-conceptualize the media scenario of Latin America on the xxi Century. First, it places the Paraguayan initiative in a
Latin American historical context, which declares and uses the communication as a tool for the articulation of social change; second, it approaches the debate
about information and communication rights and requirements, using the concept of local media as the analytical inlet. Third, it makes a call about the context
of globalization and network society as fundamental agents that had influence in politics and in the national public media practice
