La Jornada

Throughout many years La Jornada was characterized as having left-oriented editorial policy with focus on sensitive political topics that other media did not dare to cover. However, according to critical media, lately its editorial policy has been totally in favour of the PRI government (Institutional Revolutionary Party), which on the other hand, only in 2017, pumped in more than 2 million US dollars in this media for government publicity.
