Presse écrite et changement politique en Espagne, de la dictature franquiste à la démocratie

Abstract : Announcing its coming publication in 1976, the newspaper El Pa\'is introduced itself as << a newspaper without a past, that do not have to regret anything, because it does not feel responsible of anything >>. The issues weighing on the Spanish press are laid here: the political change consecutive to Franco’s death implies a rupture with the near and more distant past. This article analyses the conditions of such rupture: dismantling of the State press and censorship; redefinition of missions assigned to the press during the transition period; necessity of cost efficiency in a context of increased competitiveness; loss of the monopoly on contestation held by former Franco opponent magazines; necessary adaptation to the public taste. In the lights of recent criticisms formulated by the historiography against the model of democratic transition in Spain, the press implication in the operation of political consensus which characterized the Transition will also be questioned.
