THE STATEMENTS OF MARÍA JAMARDO
The intervention of Volodymyr Zelensky in the Congress of Deputies last Tuesday generated great expectation and media interest, especially l to reference that the president made during his speech to one of the most famous episodes of the Civil War, the bombing of Guernicawhich killed 126 civilians, a scenario that you compared with what is currently happening in your country.
The media did not take long to echo, and that same afternoon the program ‘ It’s already eight o’clock’ addressed the issue with the presence of several collaborating journalistsamong which was Maria Jamardo.
All those present gave their point of view on the matter, but they were Jamardo’s words which raised blisters and a great indignation that has led the program to apologize publicly just a day later.
“The freedom of expression that T5 always guarantees was misused. That way of interpreting history does not coincide at all with my way of thinking or that of the group”
