To the end, we interviewed the managing director and the news department head in three
of the six stations that fell in the four-state sample. In two stations, we were able to interview
only the managing director. In the one station where we were unable to obtain interviews
officially, we interviewed two news employees in an anonymous capacity, other area journalists,
and an electoral institute official with a reputation for independence. To guard against the
potential of social acceptability influencing responses, we verified potential inconsistencies with
local outsiders we considered knowledgeable and reliable.
Our sample contained three state-owned television stations operated by The Guanajuato
Radio and Television Commission; The State Radio and Television Commission of Tabasco; and
The Coordinator of Tlaxcala Radio, Cinema and Television. The stations pertained to the
executive branch in each state and their executive directors each were appointed by the governor
in office. Governors expected station managers to carry our their programming policies. In the
only case where that did not happen, Tlaxcala, the executive director of the station and the
journalists who worked with him were fired.
