In the lines that follow, we propose to highlight the differential fact that, within their correspondingstates, singles out and brings together the journalism of the four Macaronesian archipelagos, the CanaryIslands, Madeira Azores and Cabo Verde, the latter becoming independent from Portugal in 1975. Incoherence with the particularities of their respective geographical and historical substrates, we will explainhow the information systems of such island spaces, although they share with the continental ones of Spainand Portugal the late business development of newspapers, the poor professionalization of journalists, the lowreading indexes and, ultimately, the obstacles of the southern European countries as parts of them that theyare, differ from them, however, due to an ideological centrality that has no place in the traditional polarizedpluralism of the Iberian Peninsula.
