With the advertising and the money that has earned " El Jueves " is believed by me that the fine they supposes any problem.

On the other hand, I believe that the limits of the freedom of expression, in any place they have a clear limit that is the respect to the fundamental rights that other persons have. They were very conscious that they were playing with the limits, were looking for a publicity... though the consequences probably were not those who were waiting.

El Jueves can be very funny but the lastest cover is the most controversial one since the 'banned' cover from 2007.

This time they present Letizia as downfall of the monarchy looking like one of the quite popular 'femen' protesters who disturb high profile events these days. The rest of the SRF is looking on horrified. The press is taking the issue clearly to breaking point, its like Letizia has become fair game. We'll see if the authorities think this cover is offensive, to me it looks more offensive than the one in 2007 which I found quite funny to be honest.

Letizia is not my ideal CP, but to single her out as the downfall of the SRF with everything else going on with the Borbons stretches hypocrisy to new levels.

JC, Cristina and Inaki, the divorce of Elena and her strange, flamboyant ex-husband...it's a rogue's gallery of mischief and scandal in that family.

Why pick on Letizia?

Because they can, there are no limits soon. See how the press treated her especially this summer, unbelievable. As if she poisoned the water there..

I don't specially appreciate her but I must say she is the quietest one of the family as far as scandal is concerned so the cartoon is rather unfair.

I´m just tired of this whole crap. What is their goal? That she has a breakdown in public or hissy fits for the paps? Or what?

Of course, I come from Freedom of the Press. They can write what they want, you know "sticks and stones....". It is what it is, if she can't stand the heat, she should have never entered the kitchen.

She was a journalist, so she knew that she will be on the focus and under scrutinity. But I bet she didn´t thought the press would trash her 24/7. Criticism is normal, but this is beyond criticism. But hey, suck it up Letizia LOL

You do have a point.

Letizia seems to be one of those easy targets for a lot of bullying. Some people are.

They do go against Letizia but it's not as if they don't draw things against the rest of the family all the time as well:

¡Otro drama nacional! El Rey sin yate · eljueves.es · El Archivo

To say that she's the only victim is a lie, those guys respect no one and their favorite targets are the royal house in general and the government.

Banning a publication because it upsets a member of the RF is pathetic; politicians get targeted every minute and they don't whine. Letizia is no helpless convent bred virgin, she's a veteran of the press herself and is a woman of the world in every sense.
