The context in which the media and political parties function allows us to identify the links which, in certain ways, join them. The more changeable this context is – as it is in Latin American – the more the links between both players tend to be transformed, thus making it more difficult to study the region’s media systems and their peculiarities. In this piece of work we carry out a study of some of the main dimensions of political parallelism in Ecuador, taking this to mean the relationship between the media and political parties. To do so, we focused on the government of Rafael Correa which was marked by the passing of the Communication Law (Ley Orgánica de Comunicación) and a row between the Government and private media companies.
