Fidel Castro was one of the most influential and controversial foreign characters of the last decade in Chile. From the news generated by his death in November 2016, we studied the memory built around his figure in the mass media of that country. Bearing in mind that the relationship between memory and the media is not innocuous, this paper argues that the press and television newscasts, with their own ideological agendas and their inherent characteristics, remembered the leader of the Cuban revolution based on carefully selected frames: funeral rite, contextualizing and debate memory.
