He compared two national reference newspapers and two tabloids, in two periods: the first election after Pinochet's authoritarian regime in 1989, and the most recent one, 20 years later (2009), to confirm whether the use of elements of personalization and strategic frame has increased in the Chilean press. In the session Prof. Porath will discuss his findings.
