El Sol de México

El Sol de México has been characterized as having pro government ideology aligned with the one of the political party PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party); critical towards the other parties, opposition candidates and their political proposals.

During the 2012 federal elections, Enrique Peña Nieto, who was then the presidetial candidate from the political party PRI lived through the so called “black Friday” when he visited the Ibero-American University. He was received with protests and rejection from the students which obliged him to leave the institution through the back door. The next day, El Sol de México and other newspapers that belong to Organización Editorial Mexicana (OEM) had the following headlines: “Success for Peña Nieto after orchestrated boycott intent”.

El Sol de México is also considered as a conservative newspaper since it also distributes the catholic magazine Desde la Fe. This magazine is distributed through other newspapers as well which belong to the OEM.

Affiliated Interests Founder

José García Valseca - He was a media magnate who founded the first magazine when he was only 28 years old. In the 1940s, with the help from politicians from the State of Puebla, such as the governor Maximilio Ávila, he starts his own "media empire" by acquiring the newspaper chain El Sol and the sports daily Esto. At the end of the 1940s, he also founded the first school for journalism in the country. The creation of the Day of Freedom of the Press in Mexico is because of García Valseca, when he convinced the President Miguel Alemán to forgive the debt of the printed media companies towards the government company that had monopoly over the paper in Mexico. In 1972, followed by economic difficulties, he sold his media empire of 26 newspapers to Mario Vázquez Raña.
