Title Data journalism and the digital native press: coverage by El Confidencial, Eldiario.es, and El Español of the Spanish general election campaign of 10th November, 2019 Summary The sheer volume of data to which we have access today means that we are faced with a new media scenario. Data journalism offers a different way of telling stories, a visual narrative that combines data with the latest technology of analysis, visualisation, and representation. Elections provide an opportunity to study the way in which digital media publish articles related to data journalism, as a lot of the material is produced in the form of polls, surveys and interviews. By using a descriptive and comparative methodology, this study offers a unique view of the situation of data journalism in Spain through the coverage of the general election campaign of 10th November, 2019. The descriptive nature of the investigation is based on the fact that one of the objectives has been to increase the knowledge base in this area and analyse the implementation of data journalism in the Spanish digital media. The sample is based on articles from El Confidencial, Eldiario.es and El Español. Keywords Digital native press; data journalism; visualisation; political journalism; general elections.
