VAZQUEZ GONZALEZ, Natalia Ix-Chel. La violencia mediática: un estudio de caso. Convergencia [online]. 2008, vol.15, n.47, pp.103-125. ISSN 2448-5799.

The present work has as objective to state how violence appears in the mass media, for the effects of it, an analysis of referring journalistic notes to the reality of the State of Mexico is made, in the months from June to August, 2005 -period of electoral activity- from two newspapers, one local (Sol de Toluca Newspaper) and another national, in its "Estado" section (Reforma Newspaper). In order to achieve said objective the methodology of discourse analysis was used, specifically in its variant of the semantic micro-structures (summary, titular and heading of the journal report) upon which an analysis of the sort and form of the argumentation is performed; this is to say, the macro-structures understood as that hierarchical set of topics which conform the text's thematic structure, allowed centering the analysis on the problem of violence, identifying the dominating elements, examining the rage of differences and diversity of styles, as well as the diversity of styles, as well as identifying the diversity of the discourses the printed media construct around violence. Describing the discourses, generally and those of violence in particular, enable us to understand how the printed media, as media institution, has an important role in the construction of reality.
