SANCHEZ GUDINO, Hugo. Mediocracia, dinero y elección presidencial en México 2006. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2008, vol.50, n.202, pp.117-141. ISSN 0185-1918.

Starting from two concepts of Giovanni Sartoni -the esoteric democracy (simulated or banana like) and from the neopopulism- the author of this article analyzes the perverse relationships of the so called golden triangle: political parties-public funds for campaigns-propagan-da media (television foremost) through a study of an atypical corruption: the Dr. Simi. It maintains as well that the mediocracy (with Televisa as its axis) became a fundamental cornerstone for the 2006 electoral cam-paigns, having as its vices the foul play, now uncovered by the spotgate of the Federal Electoral Institute (291 thousand radio spots and unaccounted on tv) and the high cost of the election. Finally, the author makes a call to reveal the public funds in the political parties in campaign, situation that is still one of the pending outcomes of the electoral reform.

Keywords : mediocracia; corrupción política; reforma electoral; dinero; campañas políticas; Televisa; guerra sucia; costo del voto.
