Zer 2(3) : (1997)
This article is based on a research work done thanks to a grant given by the University of the Basque Country. Five Lecturers that belong to the departments of Journalism and Audio-visual Communication and Advertising have been working on it during 1995 and 1996. The main aim of this research work is the influence that the Pact of Ajuria Enea, signed by most of the political groups in 1988, had on Press. This article is just a summary of that research work.This research team has analyzed 1619 items, among which there are news published in different newspapers, opinion articles, editorials and reports. The period of time analyzed has been nearly 17 years (1979-1996). The pact mentioned above, helped by other factors, has made possible that the language used by the Press in order to condemn ETA's political violence has become more homogeneus and hard. The social, economic, politic and cultural changes that basque society has gone through have also had an influence on shaping the phenomenon. All these complements -united and lubricated among them- have allowed the social and mass-media echo to become bigger. The authors of this research work think that it is absolutely necessary to put right the mistakes and lacks that have been commited in the field of journalism in case we want to get a free and well informed public opinion.
