The bill, which has received the praise of several journalism and freedom of expression organizations, is not as controversial  as the one recently approved in Ecuador  or as contentious  as the one currently in the hands of Argentina’s Supreme Court .
However, it is not without its critics. While it has been lauded for its intention to set limits to media concentration and guarantee spaces for independent content, critics say some of its provisions are broad, ambiguous and overreaching.
Travis Knoll provides an overview of Uruguay’s proposed media law in The Knight Center's Journalism in the Americas blog .
