MELLADO, Claudia; CABELLO, Patricio  and  TORRES, Rodrigo. Journalistic models and the use of actors and sources in post-dictatorship Chilean news coverage of social affairs (1990-2010). Comun. soc [online]. 2017, n.28, pp.59-86. ISSN 0188-252X.

Through a crosslongitudinal news content analysis (N = 2.431) of social affairs coverage by the national press in Chile between 1990 and 2010, this article characterizes the use of sources and actors, as well as the presence of the “infotainment” and “civic” journalistic models. The results show significant differences in the use of actors and sources, as well as an important evolution in the presence of both the “civic” and the “infotainment” models of journalism in social affairs news coverage.

Keywords : Sources; actors; journalistic models; news; journalism.
