The Television News Observatory

This content is also available in: Italian

Since April 2018, the Permanent Television News Observatory has become an integral part of the Eurispes’ activities. The Institute, which has been archiving and analysing articles from major Italian newspapers for over thirty years, now also uses a readily available video archive to complete the panel of its analyses on the communication system.

The Observatory – which also produces a weekly review published in the form of a report – allows you to locate, through appropriate keywords, the seven generalist Italian channels’ prime time information, providing a valuable service to investigate communicational trends topics of contemporary media debate.

Furthermore, a collaboration between Eurispes and CoRiS, the Department of Communication and Social Research at the Sapienza University of Rome, has been launched since May 2019. The joint scientific direction of the Television News Observatory has been made official as a result of this collaboration.
