Event 40

Nacho Cardero in conversation with Juan Soto Ivars

Freedom of the press: A myth?

Venue: Torreón de Lozoya

The history of the press and journalism is a permanent exercise in tension and the search for flexibility between those who run and those who write for the media. Is a middle ground that leaves everyone satisfied possible, or are such relationships doomed to failure in the end? Nacho Cardero and Juan Soto Ivars talk about freedom in the media and how far it can be maintained without betraying principles and ideals.

Cardero, who has directed El Confidencial since 2011, is an experienced journalist who has worked in media such as El Mundo, and La Clave magazine as finance section head. He is the author of books such as Los PPijos (2004) and Los señores del ladrillo (2011). Soto Ivars is a writer and journalist who has worked in media such as El País and El Confidencial, where he has the section La trinchera cultural (The Cultural Trenches). Much of his literary production has focused on censorship and self-censorship of media and authors, with works such as Un abuelo rojo y otro abuelo facha (2016), Poscensura (2017), and Arden las redes (2017).

At the end of the event, the authors will sign copies of their books at the book stall on Calle Real.
