@telediario_tve @ Victims Another fantastic graphic, huh? What a great idea not to put more reference than -2.0 and to shorten the line that takes us to the bottom. There was no more screen? Can not be done correctly? Children’s tricks? Every day more pathetic. pic.twitter.com/5Xxmil0RMf

This is the rectification he made Ana Roldán, presenter of Newscast at 9:00 p.m.: “The fall of the curve is vertiginous. We show it to you in the correct proportion, which due to an error we regret, we have not shown you on the 15:00 News. ”
When a mistake is corrected you always have to be grateful. You will never see those who subscribe to lies pic.twitter.com/Ad80cODiXy
