ZUGASTI AZAGRA, Ricardo. Representation of Franco regime in Spanish Press from Transition to Democracy. anagramas rumbos sentidos comun. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.21, pp.41-54. ISSN 1692-2522.

The objective of this article is to analyze the presence of Franco and Franco regime in editorials of Spanish daily press, from transition to democracy. This study has two main objectives: on one hand to know if Franco regime was a current topic in the journalist speech of the epoch; in the same line, to examine what terms were used to define Franco regime and, definitely, what was the valuation in the press about the dictatorship and its main character; on the other hand, Franco regime was a political issue with enough identity to oblige different leaders to define themselves around it. Consequently, the results contribute to political characterization of Spanish press as a whole during transition and also to the particular characterization of the main leaders.

Keywords : Spain; daily press; history of journalism; Franco regime; transition.
