I am surprised how bad the website casareal.es is, very often it takes ages to open or there is no connection to a specific content.

Usually there is an agenda prevista so the press knows upfront where to be and can arrange their coverage. This is not the case since Corona and the pictures are very boring, King & Queen sitting in front of a screen.

RTVE, the public television, has been controlled for months by Podemos, so it is neither new nor strange that they hide the Head of State, if it is not to talk about his father's controversies.

The Casa Real YouTube channel normally has videos from the EFE Agency, which is also controlled by the government. Since the arrival of PSOE and Podemos, the videos have taken a long time to appear. Also the web server is controlled by the government.

The Spanish government is mismanaging the crisis, and the attitude of some media is more to protect the government than to report transparently. Some private media received financial aid at the start of the crisis, and will probably need more public aid ... so they must protect their money.

Spain is in a state of alarm, the government has special powers, and the King's room for maneuver is more limited. And a government with a lot of ego and that increasingly has a worse image, does not want the Head of State to overshadow them.

In Portugal the situation is not very different. Some private media have also received (or will receive) financial aid from the state and so have been lenient with the government.
It is not enough that we are experiencing a pandemic we are still witnessing a crisis of press freedom... but these are other matters...

This was unexpected and a great visit to make. I hope we will see more of this now that we are slowly opening up.



I still find so unreal pictures like this illustrating the "new normal", but I guess we'll get used to it:

I like this video, "the applause is to all of you":
