Political Parallelism and Media Coalitions in Western Europe

Visiting Fellow Juan P. Artero contributed to the work of the Reuters Institute with a working paper, 'Political Parallelism and Media Coalitions in Western Europe'. In this piece of research, Artero reviews previous studies and introduces the new concept of media coalitions, defined as the "assortment of media outlets explicitly or implicitly supporting a particular political party, candidate or ideology". That phenomenon is analysed regarding the last general elections of five Western European democracies: Britain, France, Germany, Spain and Italy.
