Abstract

This article systematises and analyses the successive Catalan nationalist governments' main media policy strategies in the years of the so-called 'pro-independence process', which began with a massive separatist demonstration in September 2012 and has since been eclipsed by the COVID-19 pandemic. It highlights four main lines of action: the instrumentalisation of regional public media; the granting of broadcast licences to private firms sympathetic to the cause; clientelism in the transfer of public funds to those private firms; and the mechanisms for pressurising and seducing foreign journalists.All of the above can be understood as an acceleration of the project to articulate an own media system, which had begun in the 1980s, for the purpose of furthering Catalonia's nation-building process.
