In the early 20th Century the media was very different from the way it is in today’s Modern Mexico. Journalists were under confinement of government officials and had little control over the news they publish and broadcast. Journalists also had the little professionalism and received a subsidized level of education. Due to their low pay grade, they ended up taking bribes for falsified news reports. In the 21st century, however, the media has evolved. Media groups became privatized, and news groups have independence in their reporting.
Current laws protect the media companies advocating for media companies dispersing education and knowledge to the public. The laws ensure that media groups disperse ideas that promote the culture and principles of Mexico. The media industry makes up a significant portion of the economy of Mexico worth$226.7 billion. Recently the Media companies in Mexico made it to the Global 2000 Forbes list. These companies include Grupo Televisa and America Movil. These two companies have their main offices in Mexico. The two have made a significant mark in the media industry. America Movil is the largest media company in Mexico; it is also the first Hispanic speaking media group. Grupo Televisa, on the other hand, has expanded its reach internationally and has a contract with the Univision channel in the US.
