Analysis | Face and cross of the ‘reality shows’

With the imposing cross of the Valley of the Fallen in the background, the plane of the helicopter Superpuma of the Armed Forces carrying the remains of Francisco Franco is one of the images that have marked 2019. Except the technical work carried out for exhumation and subsequent reburial in the cemetery of Mingorrubio 44 years later, the cameras followed to-the-minute a day described in the story. As in the best reality show, the relay also hinting at the conflicts of a family desavenida but heavily-twinned in its bitter standoff with the Executive, in addition to a prior huffed and tasteless, and a handful of fans clamoring for the embers of the dictatorship.

The television gives witness of history but also reflects the daily life. Displayed by the same images that enclose a large symbolic load, and other chabacanas or trivial. In a year full of electoral events, has been a powerful speaker for the politicians, who have walked through the entertainment programs with a natural self of the folk. When public criticism by the advance of the far right, The ant is in charge of whitening the image of the leader of Vox, Santiago Abascal, who enjoyed a 42-minute propaganda free. Hence the election debate prior to the general November 10, there was only a step. For the first time the ultra-right stood as an equal, and the same set, with the other candidates. Result: 52 seats.

For the two large private operators, Atresmedia and Mediaset, is a year of lights and shadows. They have amassed economic benefits substantial, but it will be less by the penalty 77.1 million imposed by the CNMC for violations of the rules of the competition in marketing advertising. On state tv, the straits financial joins a disturbing situation of a provisional nature. The effects are obvious: never TVE had gone through such a critical moment. The audience of its main channel is below 10% and the media, a sign of identity of the chain, have been placed behind the information of the private.

Finally, and after a lengthy judicial process, in this course has been shelved to a conflict that for years have maintained Mediaset and the company that created the format Pasapalabra, which from now on will be in Antenna 3, the house in which it began airing in Spain. Telecinco has sounded the alarm for the alleged sexual abuse case before the cameras in the editing of 2017 of Big Brother, a scandal that has badly eroded the image of the most famous contest of coexistence and has earned the reproach of the advertisers.

throughout the year, viewers have applauded the passage of Isabel Pantoja by Survivors, the former minister Màxim Huerta has found refuge in TVE and Chernobyl has triumphed in the realm of Internet platforms. Telemadrid has withstood the onslaughts of the new regional Government and TV3 has picked up during the riots triggered in Catalonia after the judgment of the procés. Conversation policies have perfected the style of Save me and the mps are still doing the ridiculous in comedy. In case outside little, on Thursday, again Tell me. A sample of the television is circular and able to be recycled with amazing efficiency.
