The psychic mobility provided by the media allows to have an image of a country never visited before or to know a society without needing to have a direct relationship. The constructed image of a country is based on editorial interests and productive decisions that respond to the position that country has in relation to others. In the case of China, Spanish television broadcasts political and economic information, characteristics of developed countries, as well as sensationalist content, more typical of those on the periphery. The television image of China is that of a country still in process of transition towards a central place in the international context.
