RTVE in the Balearic islands

An interesting example of how content monitoring can be used to further charges of bias. One of the members of the RTVE council has accused the local RTVE franchise there of being biased, on the grounds that the PP was given only 7% of screen time despite forming the regional government.

Unfortunately, the story provides little information on how this information was collected. The complainant, María José Ramirez, bases her complaint on "a study of the last six month's news, carried out by an independent organisation" - but which independent organisation, and according to what criteria, is unknown.
