The so-called Fourth Estate or the press is in the midst of a process of change and innovation, in regard to accessing information, technological transformations and new ways of offering contents and news. This raises many questions, such as: What is the current and future role of the press in society and the country’s politics? What effect do the new digital media have on the traditional press? What is the state of the legislation about information on the Internet? Which new business models are being proposed? or What use do we make of the information on social networks or mobile phone apps? These are just some of the issues the journalists José Antonio Zarzalejos and Soledad Gallego-Díaz will debate.

A debate format in which, once a month, on a Monday at 7:30 pm, leading experts analyse important issues that make up today’s social reality with the journalists Antonio San José and Íñigo Alfonso.

The future of the Autonomous Regions in Spain, electoral reform, robots and industry, climate change, political leadership during the Spanish democracy, pharmaceutical industry and health, the Arab world, the solutions to the crisis, independence movements, globalisation, the future of Europe, anti-system movements, aging, virus of the new Millennium and the future of the monarchies in the world have been several of the issues involved.

The presenters put some of the audience’s questions to the guests. Please send your suggestions to:
