Licensing followed strict political criteria, while public interest mandates and other performance requirements were loosely enforced, in return for which broadcasters guaranteed public oﬃcials favorable news coverage and broad political support (Martín-Barbero 1987). Horizontal integration caps, cross-media ownership limitations, and restrictions on the functioning of broadcasting networks were also common, as a means for governments to keep the power of broadcasters—and media corporations in general—at bay.
