In recent years Chile has emerged in a number of partnerships promoting journalistic self-regulation. Print and visual media have been organized to create ethics boards that help to do their job well. At the same time, various media have created their program guidelines or style manuals that have been made public. This research aims to explore the reasons that led to the creation of the principal and first self-regulatory body in Chile: the Consejo de Ética de los Medios, when and why it was inspired and the idea that the promoters had when they created it.
