The real press is the one that bothers. Politics vs. Prensa analyzes five years of political and media life in Peru (2016 to 2021), from one electoral campaign to another. The lawyer and journalist Andrés Calderón presents the keys to understanding the crisis that the Peruvian press is going through, punctuated by political or political-business interests, which found in the Congress of the Republic the perfect way to enact laws that protect and endanger them latene the free exercise of journalism.

Andrés Calderón, thanks to the exhaustive review of legislative initiatives, newspapers, magazines and radio communication programs, studies the memorable episodes of those electoral campaigns marked by descriptions of "jam", trolls, chat leaks, attacks on the confidentiality of sources, "cryptanalysis", and accusations to the press of lack of objectivity, transparency and verification of sources. Politics vs. Press is a fundamental book to study the boundaries of journalism and legal obligations, and to understand that the honest search for the truth must continue to be the main battle weapon of journalism.

"These last five turbulent years -and the many others that will surely come- make Andrés Calderón's reporting and analysis of the media, journalism and its turbulent relationship with politics very necessary."
