Gives the same masters and doctorates you have in journalism. If you have left the teeth in the newsrooms to the side of self-taught people like Martin Prieto or correspondents learning from the best of Times or the BBC, who never asked for the title, it is still difficult to defend its cogency.
The 56 per cent of the 1694 journalists that have responded this year to the survey of the Press Association of Madrid (APM) for the yearbook is considered a mandatory title for the exercise of the profession.
"The more young, the more in favor they are," explains Luis Palacio, director of DigiMedios and responsible for the editing of the last seven (of fifteen) yearbooks published up to today. It was the first time that we included that question.
For the fifth year in a row there is a reduction of the registered unemployment among journalists. "This year is 6828, still 50% more than in 2008," warns Palace. "We refer to the registered unemployed in the first option, not all that are kept in the offices or the newly graduated who have never held a job in the profession or to the job seekers by different ways". Six out of every ten journalists unemployed are women and four men.
in spite of this, in the course 2016-1017 graduated in journalism almost 3500 students and in audiovisual techniques 2800. The Spanish universities have offered in the past year 66 degrees and 83 master's degrees in journalism and information.
unemployment and job insecurity remain the main problems, but the number of those who thus recognize it has been reduced by 60% in 2014 to 26% this year. "It's a spectacular fall, but we do not know the causes," says Palace.
it is increasingly necessary to moonlighting to get decent wages. "In journalism, the number of moonlighters has increased by 4 points and in communication (institutional and corporate) in 11 points," he says. "30% of employed and 50% of the self-employed still enter less than 1500 euros per month".
"Other problems are going to grow," he adds. "For the 21%, the main problem is the bad retribution, to the 19% the worst of all is the lack of political and economic independence of the media, and to a 15% what is more serious is the lack of rigor and neutrality."
To this panorama we must add -says in the introduction, Victoria Prego, president of the APM, in its "exceptional portrayal of the journalism of today"- the phenomenon, which is not far from new but which has become massive, "the proliferation, as it had never before been known, of the fake news, hoaxes manufactured with intentions usually dark, in short, of the misinformation that, to my surprise, many of the respondents residencian in the media".
