The place of political columnist in current journalism = El lugar del columnismo político en el periodismo actual
Comunicación y Sociedad
This paper discusses the place the "opinion" fits in the media field, in political field, in the "world of readers" and in the hierarchy of professions. On the other hand, we intend to characterize both professionally and socially the actors who sign the opinion columns and how their legitimacy is built. This paper intends to be a contribution to a conceptual framework of this "activity" and its main argument is that the place of the columnists is best understood as a subfield at the crossroads of both the media and the political fields.
