    Hello.

    How would you say "poder mediático"?

    Thanks in advance.

    Maybe "power of the media"? Can you give us more context, please?

    Hello!
    I think "media power" is correct.

    Hi, Loob! Thanks for your answer!

    For example, "el gobierno venezolano tiene mucho poder mediático".

    TIA.

    Hi, Jorge, and thanks for the answer!

    I thought it was the right translation too, but I'm not sure. I've searched for that on google and i don't seem to get phrases similar to the one I want to say.

    Cheers!

    Ah - that changes things.

    I can still see more than one possible English translation though.

    "El gobierno venezolano tiene mucho poder mediático"

    could, I suspect, mean either:

    The Government of Venezuela has a good deal of power/influence/control over the [Venezuelan] media

    or

    The Government of Venezuela has a high media profile.

    I leave it to you to determine which is the closer translation:)

    All the best

    Loob
