The mediation of political life (the intensive and regular use of the media, the press, radio and especially television from the political class) is intimately attached to the transformation of contemporary societies’ political frame. This transformation places the relation between the media and the power in the heart of today’s relevant scientific debates. The relation between media and political life constitutes an important factor for understanding contemporary political issues.
