COMPETING WITH LANATA: In Buenos Aires, Daniel Lagares reported Buenos Aires Deputy Governor Gabriel Mariotto admitted the schedule change was made to distract viewers from Jorge Lanata's highly-rated Journalism For All program, which is critical of the government and airs at the same time, 9:30pm.

Everyone always fought for the rating. It seems perfect to me that the channels compete" (CLARIN, 5/21).
