abstract

  • In the present article the Spanish press throughout the years of political change is approached by means of its content producers: journalists. As such we present their interpretations of the part the Spanish daily press had throughout the years of the democratic transition. These results were achieved by carrying out focus groups with different sets of journalists, actives in newspapers between 1972 and 1982.
