Resumen

VILLAFRANCO ROBLES, Citlali. The role of the mass media in democracies. Andamios [online]. 2005, vol.2, n.3, pp. 7-21. ISSN 1870-0063.

In this paper the discussion centers on some ideas about the impact of mass media in the consolidation of democracies. It supports the idea that in complex societies the possibility to reach democracy is by representation, through elections, and in this process information plays a principal role where citizens choose their representatives and the mass media become a crucial factor in the definition of electoral results.

Palabras llave : Politics; representation; citizens; democracy; mass media.
