  • Construction of the Figure of "Artemio" and the Shining Path in the Journalistic Discourse of the Peruvian Newspapers El Comercio and La Republica

    This article examines the journalistic construction of the figure of “Artemio,” one of the leaders of the terrorist organization Shining Path (Sendero Luminoso). The research focuses on his capture in 2012 by analyzing the journalistic discourse employed for this news in two mainstream Peruvian newspapers with different editorial lines, El Comercio and La República. We chose El Comercio and La República because both papers closely covered the events during the 1980s and ’90s at the peak of terrorist violence in Peru.
