Elementos para una genealogía del término "telebasura" en España

Manuel Palacio


Where does the term “trash TV” come from? Given the
definition provided by the academicians of the Royal
Academy of Language, one could draw the erroneous
conclusion that, in Spain, the invocation of quality as
the rudder that guides television seems to restrict itself to
what is so considered by journalists, politicians and
Catholic moralists. The different “Manifestos”, media
debates, editorial declarations and legislative attempts
which, since March 2001, have appeared in our country
based on the debate against trash TV, have combined a
certain definition of the term and an absolute vagueness
with regard to the topic of quality, without, up to now,
there having been any visible concern from the areas of
academic thought or from the industry.
