ABSTRACT
This article looks at the involvement of the Nicaraguan press in politics. Managua, Nicaragua's three morning dailies, Barricada, La Prensa, and El Nuevo Diario, differ dramatically not only in style but in politics. Barricada, the official organ of the Sandinista government, is as boring as any in-house corporate magazine. La Prensa, senior member of the Nicaraguan press and long a potent adversary of the Somoza regime, continues publishing as the newspaper of opposition. El Nuevo Diario, on the other hand, has had to fight for its niche.
