Sin disimular ni nada

Dice The New York Times:
El País in Rare Break With Socialist President

PARIS — When loyal readers opened Spain’s leading daily newspaper, El País, last Sunday, some may have spilled their morning café con leche.

The 30-year-old, center-left newspaper — long a reliable supporter of the governing Socialist Party — published a huge, withering caricature portraying Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero at the helm of a sinking map of Spain, encircled by sharks marked unemployment and deficit.

El País says the Captain Zapatero cartoon — and searing critique of the Zapatero government’s economic policies — is simply part of its coverage of “la crisis.”

But others, inside and outside the government, suspect that the newly muscular coverage is a result of a backstage clash between the newspaper’s parent company, Grupo Prisa, and a rival, Mediapro, over digital television rights granted to Mediapro by the Zapatero government. […]
Se refieren al suplemento Negocios del pasado domingo 6. O sea, que según la periodista, El País se dedica a apoyar al Partido Socialista y eso en función de si ese partido trata bien o mal los negocios de El País.

¿Ya lo ha desmentido El País? No sé, con una nota indignada del Comité de Redacción mostrando su más enérgica repulsa. Porque si esto lo publicara alguien aquí se armaría la parda –con razón, además.

Gracias D*.

PS: buenísimo lo de "newly muscular coverage".
