In the search that originated this book, the author begins by formulating three hypotheses:
1) In the last decades the content of the media has impoverished, particularly in the audiovisual sector;
2) The public demands are not the main cause for that tendency;
3) The vulgarization of the contents is a high-risk company bet.
If the three hypothesis are confirmed, we can conclude that the deterioration of the news and entertainment contents obey mainly to facts that we have not clearly detected: insufficient number of competitors, lack of talent from those who make the products or lack of professionalism in the executive staff or management.
Therefore, if we go through that path, we can open a door to hope: instead of contemplating, in astonishment, the news superficiality and the rudeness of many entertainment programs, we find out that there are possibilities to recover part of the lost land.
