This past Monday, TardeAR, Telecinco's new afternoon program with Ana Rosa Quintana at the helm, premiered on television. His arrival completes a transition in the afternoons of the network that began last May, when the closure of Sálvame was announced after 14 uninterrupted years on the air.
One of the big doubts surrounding this premiere was whether it would have political content, as was the case with the morning program Ana Rosa, and despite the fact that these themes had been avoided in Telecinco afternoons to date. In that sense, the presenter assured that she would not do a program only about politics, but that issues related to her would be discussed if they were part of the current affairs of the day.
This happened, for example, this Tuesday in the second installment of TardeAR. The arrival of Catalan, Galician and Basque to the sessions of the Congress of Deputies has become one of the topics of the day and has also had its place in Quintana's program from a few minutes after it started.
Collaborators such as Xavier Sardá, Cristina Cifuentes, Carolina Ferre or the tiktoker Marina Rivers have given their opinion on the need to adopt this measure in the Lower House, in addition to analyzing the earpiece method used for the understanding of all deputies. And among those presentations there was also that of Ana Rosa herself, who quickly delved into the issue.
"When they go out on the patio there in Congress, one speaks in Basque, the other in Catalan, the other in Bable, or do they all speak to understand each other? Really, this is utilitarianism at a certain moment," pointed out the presenter, agreeing with Sardá in an opinion previously expressed by the collaborator.
Quintana had been reluctant to speak openly on the subject, especially after the controversy that some of his editorials usually arouse. However, she has not been shy about making public her thoughts on the matter and in the end she ironized: "I don't want to get involved as if this were a social gathering, but come on... If I don't take it out, I'll burst," she concluded.
