The main goal of this chapter is to present Portugal and Spain as relevant benchmarks for the analysis of the relationship between media and politics in the CEE new democracies. Throughout the chapter, a comparative framework of the European Union member states in 2009 is used in order to offer the reader a detailed, contextualized, and updated analysis of the main features that characterize the Portuguese and Spanish media systems, as well as the implications for the role of the media in the political process. In addition to discussing the cases of Spain and Portugal, this chapter also offers some ideas on how specific CEE countries may resemble the media systems of the Iberian nations.

Keywords:   Portugal, Spain, media systems, polarized pluralism, market development, intervention, political bias, journalist professionalization
