LA MINERÍA DE TEXTO COMO MÉTODO DE ANÁLISIS: UNA MIRADA A LA ADMINISTRACIÓN LOCAL EN LA PRENSA ESPAÑOLA

The goal of this paper is to show an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary extension of Political Science and, in particular, of Political Communication. This study presents a brief approach to some of the possibilities offered by computing as a method of data extraction, quantification, classification and generation. We intend to highlight text mining as a means of understanding a large number of observations in a rapid and expeditious manner. Through the main newspapers in Spain (ABC, El Mundo and El País), we implement a model to search style patterns about coverage local management.
