Online journalism dates back to the end of the 1970s, when Knight-Ridder launched an initiative to develop a videotext service in the United States, which it later dropped, in 1986, after realizing enormous losses. In 1988, Knight-Ridder bought Dialog Information Services, Inc.; only a year later, the first signs of success appeared. By the end of the 1980s, Gannet launched a daily news piece in text format. In 1992, The Chicago Tribune became the world’s first daily to launch an electronic version of its newspaper. In 1993, Knight-Ridder started publishing what would eventually become one of the paradigms of electronic journalism, the San Jose Mercury Center. By 1994, the major newspapers in the United States offered readers an online version (Díaz & Meso, 1998). Now, Internet users can read newspapers, listen to the radio, and watch TV from anywhere, anytime (McClung, 2001).
