Quarrel between Intxaurrondo and Tellado over the appointment of the new president of RTVE

On the occasion of the appointment of Concepción Cascajosa as the new interim president of RTVE, the popular spokesperson in Congress, Miguel Tellado, and the presenter of the TVE program La Hora, Silvia Intxaurrondo, have been involved in a scuffle in which the PP leader has reproached the presenter for "being so happy" about the appointment.

"It is bad news that Pedro Sánchez has put a socialist activist with her card between her teeth as head of RTVE," said Tellado, who added that this appointment "is an insult to the audience, especially to honest professionals." Given this statement, Intxaurrondo has defended that Concepción Cascajosa "is a professional with a very solid resume", and recalled that the full Senate "appointed her as a member of the Board of Directors of RTVE with more than 88% of the votes."

"I'm glad that you are so happy that Pedro Sánchez has appointed Concepción Cascajosa as interim president," the popular spokesperson reprimanded the presenter. "Sánchez has not named her because of her resume, but because of her political militancy," added Tellado.

Furthermore, the popular one has assured that the new interim president "will politicize all the content" and has blurted out to the TVE presenter that "if that seems like good news to you, that's up to you, because your impartiality today is called into question."

Finally, Silvia Intxaurrondo has claimed that the program she presents "was the leader in current information in its time slot."

It is not the first time that both have been involved in a moment of tension, since on September 26, during an interview on the same program, Intxaurrondo asked Tellado not to use "thick expressions" when the politician accused Sánchez of "prostitution." democracy.
