Buenos Aires Clubs Boca Juniors, River Plate Hope To Reverse TV-Motivated Decision
Published May 22, 2013
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. Mariotto: "The decision to change the schedule of the games is for ratings and competition against a good program like Lanata's. It seems political, it seems athletic, but it is TV. Everyone always fought for the rating. It seems perfect to me that the channels compete" (CLARIN, 5/21).
