News agencies

Honduras does not have a national news agency. International agencies operate in the country via national reporters. The daily content they produce is mainly news related to the government, international cooperation, or national panoramas of international importance. During past events of geopolitical relevance, such as the case of the last cold war and the Nicaraguan counterrevolution and the Salvadoran civil war, the press agencies with a presence in Honduras have been Agence France-Presse (AFP), Associated Press (AP), NOTIMEX of Mexico, EFE, Reuters, and regional and international media correspondents of Univision, CNN, Telemundo and Telesur. During the main political crises of the recent past, there was a strong presence of international press agencies in Honduras, as well as journalists from the main international press chains. At present, this presence is discreet. Several of these news agencies have a mixed character; On the one hand, they can be very politically oriented services, while on the other hand, they often combine entertainment, gossip and news.
