The Catholic Church’s overwhelming presence in the media

This situation characterises the major media, i.e. television, but is also the case for the national-based radio or print media.
The only place minority faiths can air their views is on local TV or radio programmes (see below). However, so far, only the Christian faiths have access to these programmes. The Muslim faith is thus totally absent in the media.
An assumption can be made in this instance. There is widespread use of satellite TV by Muslim families, thus providing them access to television stations in their home countries or the Muslim world. As a result, the need to set up Muslim stations in Spain is perhaps, yet to be felt.
