Medios de Comunicación Privados y Poder Político en Ecuador 2007-2016

Translated title of the contribution: Private Media And Political Power In Ecuador 2007-2016

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In Ecuador, the private media have historically been linked to the country's large economic groups, there was no public media and the development of community spaces was scarce. The dominant position of some of the large private media allowed them to negotiate with the State and the public function in compromise or in other cases they were used as pressure tools. From a critical perspective, this research shows the links of the country's main media with private corporations and describes the change that the arrival of Rafael Correa to the Presidency of the Republic in 2007 meant for them, since one of the Government's goals was to regulate the media and create a new communication law.
