The media as symbolic enclaves are mostly used by people who have not directly observed events. In this work we have set ourselves the general objective of analyzing the treatment of the Colombian armed conflict from a paradigmatic case, such as the "collar-bomba" case from its informative construction in the newspaper El Tiempo (2000-2019), based on three periods associated with different presidential agendas. This is a referential case that alludes both to the role of the media in one of the longest-running conflicts in Latin America, and to the possible intervention of the State within those same media. The chosen technique has been manual content analysis, based on the study of the latent and express characteristics of the contents associated with said case; but, to deepen the data processing, it has been complemented with a computerized content analysis. The results indicate that the case of the "collar-bomb" has evolved in the three periods proposed, from an emotional coverage, related to a treatment that bordered on sensationalism, to being inserted as a contextualization theme within other broader themes.
