In recent months a number of high profile dismissals have been made at RTVE, the body which manages public TV and radio services in Spain. This follows criticism from the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE) and other left-wing parties in the country over the appointment of officials at RTVE with links to the governing Partido Popular (PP) party led by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. CFOM’s Director Jackie Harrison gives an overview for the LSE’s EUROPP blog of the controversy and argues that while it is still too early to come to firm conclusions, the developments may have future implications for press freedom in the country.
