The article explores the so-called parallel or mediatic judgments and their recognition in Chile. This, in order to discard the positions that refute its legality based on the impairment of the right to the presumption of innocence and guarantees of the independence and impartiality of the judge or court that is aware of a criminal process. As a general conclusion, it is postulated that this does not occur in hypotheses where rights and guarantees are exercised correctly, especially within an open government that promotes transparency, accountability of the authorities and citizen participation in decision-making.
