THE AMERICAS — ARGENTINA — ADVERTISING & INFLUENCE
Argentina’s government is accused of routinely manipulating distribution of official advertising to limit free speech, according to many press freedom organizations. The newspapers Clarín and La Nación account for 60 percent of the readership in Buenos Aries, but receive just 2.5 percent of government advertising. Other newspapers with a small fraction of the circulation are awarded far more official advertising.
