El País

The first edition of this newspaper was published a few months after the death of the military dictator Francisco Franco. It is seen as the first paper to show commitment to a democratic society, while the other papers first had to try and come to terms with their past under the dictatorship. In the times of insecurity during the military putsch of 23 February 1981 El País ran a special edition in which it clearly declared its support for democracy.
