Title The Audiovisual Treatment of crime reports on the web. A study case about the treatment of Marta del Castillo´s case in Rtve.es and Telecinco.es Summary Internet has generated big changes in the journalistic environment, but classical genres like crime report are still present in the media agenda, especially in channels that have found in the Internet new forms of exhibiting their content. In the present paper, the audiovisual treatment that these news have recieved has been analyzed through Marta del Castillo's case in both Rtve.es and Telecinco.es. The purpose was to find differences and similarities between public (Rtve.es) and private media (Telecinco.es). A content analysis of the week with the highest rate of coverage for the case revealed that Rtve.es provides with a more informative view, as opposed to Telecinco.es, which tends to be more affective and sensationalist. Keywords Internet; audiovisual information; public television; private television; Rtve.es; Telecinco.es
