--and Well Tied Down: Chile's Press Under Democracy
Collaborators of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet took over Chile's news media as part of an endeavor to promote the ideology of the dictatorship during times of democracy. To support this claim, Leon-Dermota offers a complete examination of Chile's media and political and economic bases that no political science, economic, or media studies work has done. Finding that much of Chile's power-brokering occurs outside of the political playing field, Leon-Dermota shows why left-of-center governments elected since 1990 have been powerless to advance programs or policies not approved by Chile's power elite, which comprises most industry, the rightmost Roman Catholic service organizations, and the media--with the goal of imposing an ideology descended from fascist Spain under Francisco Franco.
