American University System

To find out what happens in the world already not enough to watch different newscasts on television or toggle the newspapers that can be purchased at the kiosk. The impoverishment and the repetition of the same international information in different media is due in part to the current crisis, to informative contents determined increasingly by what sells domain increasing advertising and the major international news agencies. In the current crisis, many media around the world succumb to pessimism and the law of least effort to sustain the impossibility of doing good international journalism by lack of resources to sustain correspondents abroad. Took refuge in the old and fallacious assumption that the audience should give you what you want, as if there were hearings and not the people who watch television, listen to the radio or reading the newspaper that like them, starting with where most like them. In a world so inter-connected as ours, people need increasingly more knowing what is happening in other parts of the world. In that effort, the correspondents have become intermediaries between other realities and people who read the newspaper or watch television, one of its most important tasks as pointed out by the Spanish journalist Rosa Maria Calaf. Dialogue between peoples, breaking stereotypes and taboos regarding other cultures depend, largely, of the work of reporters and international journalists. Lack of cultural sensitivity is rooted in training and education. For this reason, communication professionals face the challenge of stemming the drift of information international toward a journalism of second category. Many journalists are beginning to slip into stereotypes and cliches, by news that are repeated year after year, accounted for by the spectacle of the tragedy. Journalist ceases to be where is the news, but that the news is where is the informant. The imprint left by the years of training and the value that comes here to collation This has in future communication professionals. To commemorate their years of the Faculty of information science, a Spanish journalist joked about the number of times you read Max Weber on different subjects that repeated theories and content in five years of career. At the end, I ended up tired of a sociologist so important, she said. It is less than teach the technical methods of a journalism of the past or repeat endless theories of information that have criteria in a comprehensive manner. I.e., with good bibliographies multi – disciplinary, with workshops and classes where they can write and discuss, with solid knowledge of history, geography, literature, philosophy and culture in general, but also perhaps in matters of science and mathematics, as it has provided the American University System. These disciplines are at the basis of observation, reasoning, moderation, responsibility, prudence and cultural sensitivity that should have international journalists. In United States, journalism students need to overcome at least one subject from mathematics, science, literature and other Humanities, among which you can choose sociology, psychology or philosophy. In many universities is compulsory, in addition, an annual subject which studies the history of Islam, from China, the history of ancient Greece and other themes of geography and culture. International University exchanges are also promoted as it is done in Europe with the Erasmus programme to sow the first seeds of sensitivity toward other cultures. British journalist Timothy Garton Ash disagreed in an article with the posture of a Chinese politician, according to which journalists should promote consensus, trust, cooperation and respect. This is perhaps the task of ambassadors. But not journalists and, above all, not to reporters. His job is to report truthful, impartial and graphically about what see, hear, smell and read. A training more comprehensive help journalists to us pleguemos to that function, for the sake of this interconnected world.
