Abstract /

Democracy is impossible if citizens are not well informed, and today´s media are rnediocre. Freedom and the search for truth are insufficient; quality, ba sed on technique and on an ethical approach, is a prime requisite for serving the public well. In the near future, the media will be radically transformed: newspapers will be replaced by the telemedia; there will be less confusion between information and entertain ment; "pseudo-events" will no longer be published; pressures and taboos will be abandoned; the concept of information will be broader; news will be of higher quality, based on reality rather than on appearances, more interesting and intelligible. Information will be at the service of science, foster the public debate, favor reform and be more respecful of ethical codes. This will be achieved by internal and external quality-control mechanisms based on critique, observation and public access. In this process the university community has a vital role to play.
