The RTVE Interactive Media News Council expressed its rejection “with the tone and content of the broadcast of the Goya Awards red carpet on RTVE Play by an external collaborator”. In this way, the News Council spoke out this Monday against the attitude and words of Inés Hernand in the moments preceding the Goya ceremony last Saturday.

Although the statement does not cite the author of the content, her words refer to the brief meeting that Hernand had with Pedro Sánchez during the event and who had already raised much criticism on social networks for appearing to cheer for the Prime Minister . The presenter asked him about the last film he had seen and his opinion about it. The snow society. “I didn’t like it, I liked it,” Sánchez said. When the politician leaves, Hernand shouts at him: “You are an icon, president, we love you!”, a moment shared by the same communicator on their social networks and in whose responses one can read both complaints about his behavior and praise from his followers.

“As much as we wish to give a casual, alternative tone and designed for a youth audience, we believe that any content carrying the RTVE brand must respect the standards of quality and neutrality included in the RTVE stylebook and within the framework of the Information Statute “, read the statement from the RTVE Interactive Media News Council, which was republished by the RTVE News Council’s official X account. And he adds: “Apart from other more than questionable interventions during the broadcast (burps, complaints, swear words without context…), it seems to us that the flattering tone towards a President of the Government, whatever the sign, has no meaning. say, “It has a place on public radio and television, which is for everyone.” The Council, the text adds, will ask for explanations from the managers of RTVE Play, where the program was broadcast.

In another tweet, Inés Hernand responded to the statement and the criticism, although without direct mention of the News Council text. “I dedicate myself to entertainment and, honestly, I am happy to carry out my role,” he said a few hours after the body that guarantees the free information and independence of workers in the digital area of ​​RTVE made the position public of him.

It is not the first controversy for a similar reason that Inés Hernand is involved in. In June 2023, RTVE axed the programme’s special Gene Playz created to celebrate LGTBI+ pride. At one point in the broadcast, Hernand assured: “I have to say, the good guys always win. Although the violence is structural, I have no doubt that a progressive government will win the next general election.”

A few hours later, the official report Gen Play XL on Pride after its live broadcast. A statement not included in the production company’s script could compromise its commitment to neutrality despite the fact that it is an entertainment program,” the statement reads. That broadcast was no longer available on the Internet at that time.
