    Abstract

    This article presents the results of a comparative research study on the regulation of public broadcasters' political news coverage in ten European countries. The aim of the study was to establish whether any regulation of political pluralism is applied to daily news programmes in both electoral and non-electoral periods. The results for each country and the comparative conclusions are given here. The data reveal that the politicisation of regulation varies according to the use of qualitative or quantitative criteria. The article also describes the political systems for the control of pluralism in each of the ten countries studied.
