Article by the MESO team on the thematic interests of users of Argentine news sites in 2016

The article analyzes the thematic preferences of online news consumers in Argentina during 2016, through a mixed method that integrates content analysis with in-depth interviews. The quantitative analysis, carried out in seven of the most important news sites in Argentina, indicates that during 2016 news about politics and sports were the most watched, although this interest was not constant: the notes on the government of President Mauricio Macri and the complaints of corruption cases had a dominant position among the most read during the first semester, while in the second part of the year said position was occupied by news about the achievements of the athletes.
