Businessmen, Partisans and Oligarchs: Political Control, News Production Philosophies And Partisan Bias In Mexican Television News
Unformatted Document Text:  12 legislative vote in the state from which that broadcast emanated.

legislative vote in the state from which that broadcast emanated. In order to make the 1997
electoral data maximally comparable, we have included the vote shares of minor parties that ran
separately in 1997 but aligned with the PAN or the PRD in 2000. Thus, the 1997 vote share for
the Alliance for Change includes the votes of the Green Party (PVEM), while that of the Alliance
for Mexico includes the votes of the Labor Party (PT).

As the data show, there was clearly a relationship between the volume of coverage that
the main parties received in 2000 and their past electoral strength across different regions of the
country. Equally clearly, however, this relationship was hardly perfect; the correlations in Table
1 are only 0.42 for the PAN, 0.32 or the Left, and 0.22 for the ruling party. A number of other
factors appear to influence television coverage.
The remaining sets of figures in Table 1 report the average share of the electoral coverage
earned by each major party, grouped by various political and ownership patterns. For each set of

(with minor parties making up the rest). The last row in each set represents the average
difference between the parties’ scores in the first two rows. (Because minor parties are excluded,
these differences will not necessarily sum to zero.)

Correlations between 1997 and 2000 votes for the major parties are as follows: 0.73 for the AC, 0.67 for the PRI,
