The immigrant’s media consumption has generally been studied from the perspective of social integration with superficial descriptions of media choices. This article introduces Habermas’s analytical categories which allows for the possibility of a new focus on media reception. The categories of lifeworld and system can build a theoretical framework and comprehensive methodology for studying media reception from the social, cultural and individual context. From this critical theory of social reality we can develop an original discourse analysis. For this reason we study diaspora interviews that talk about the media experiences of the immigrants, since the meaning and interpretation procedures are used by the immigrants themselves. Every speech shows parallels with reality in terms of the semantic content, historical time and social space of the human groups that are socially integrated.
