Abstract: In a media system where self-regulation is poorly institutionalized, the development of media accountability online practices is in the hands of initiatives of the newsrooms under the scrutiny of a vibrant of media bloggers. The polarization of political positions in the blogosphere and the principles of journalistic neutrality clash with a dynamic that seems to deter transparency practices. Online-only news sites seem to be more keen than traditional media websites to be responsive to the audience, but accountability is seen more as a natural feature of the Internet than as a journalistic principle.
