The following research is to study the figure of the editor in some online Chilean newspapers and their participation in the journalistic norms. The initial hypothesis is that the way that the norms work in online newspapers is very different from those of the daily paper. The methodology used was an in-depth interview to seven editors of online newspapers and participant observations in three of these media. The results of the investigation led to the conclusion that the way to work the norms in the online newspaper is very different than its daily paper, the editor plays a different role from traditional media and online Chilean newspapers are still less independent from their paper versions.
