When Paolo Vasile ordered Jorge Javier Vázquez to crush María Teresa Campos and Terelu

The death of Maria Teresa Campos It has unleashed, as is logical, a DANA of reactions that has flooded the media in general and television stations in particular with praise for the deceased journalist. In the programs, naturally, with the deceased almost in body present, the praises of her figure were the watchword, even on Telecinco, where they remembered that that was her house.

Something else would have grated, as happened on the Telecinco set when Lequio got upset to claim that Ana Rosa Quintana is the queen of the mornings after hearing her colleagues cover Teresa with glory. Television devours itself and on September 5 the wood that fed the boiler of the share she had a saint’s name.

Teresa was not, no matter how much in the sad hours after her death, most of the speeches were directed at glossing her enormous career, her indisputable professional level, at the level of the best, or that she was a pioneer, brave and generous . All true. It is fair to repeat it.

But María Teresa was certainly not a saint, as we said. That is known by almost everyone who worked with or against her, including her daughters, and this Tuesday they mourned her departure and applauded her legacy without fissures.

Beyond the due respect, the condolences towards her relatives and the admiration for a journalist from head to toe, this mourning Tuesday we witness some scenes of affection towards María Teresa, perhaps cloying in some cases or that smell of imposture, which It is what the postureo was called before.

It is normal in the context of such a recent death and it is what it takes to drag viewers, of course. María Teresa herself would have done the same, although she would surely have done it better than her posthumous clappers. However, some compliments and farewells have caused a certain feeling of embarrassment among those of us who witnessed some of the battles of the deceased with professionals from the television medium. Because there was a time when the communicator was crushed and insulted from Mediaset. Mercedes Milá, who knows very well what she is talking about, pointed to Vasile. The former Mediaset boss, who referred to his employee with apparent affection, remembered, with a cynicism typical of a script by Coppola or Scorsese in one of his masterpieces, when María Teresa insulted him. “She called me an asshole on air. I get it. I always thought from her point of view she was right. Then over time it all calmed down and she went back on the network,” she told Abc.

The truth is that the journalist burst one day in full direct after months of attacks against her and her family ordered by the Berlusconi boss in Spain. Vasile decided, when María Teresa left Mediaset to go to Antena 3, that it had to be destroyed and he used the power of his chains and some of his puppets to try to crush it. At that time, the bursts of shots she received (many times using her daughters to hurt her) affected her health. She even suffered from cancer that she had a hard time overcoming.

One of the soldiers who carried out the Roman’s command is called Jorge Javier Vázquez, another that this Tuesday, to proclaim his admiration for María Teresa in front of the gallery, he stopped for a moment from phoning celebrities to beg them to be interviewed in that copy of the anthill call Chinese tales with which he intends to erase Pablo Motos from the map. This is how she said goodbye to her friend or enemy: “Dear Teresa, when I was a teenager I saw you from the dining room of my apartment in San Roque and you were company and support in those difficult years in which a teenager is discovering himself. Committed and professional woman indisputable. Our fights have been as epic as our reconciliations. For years you have been part of the History of Television in our country with capital letters but, above all, and most importantly, you are part of our memory. Rest. I love you”.

It is not necessary to go back too far in the archives or in the newspaper libraries to list the endless rosary of atrocities that La Fábrica de la tele (and many others in Mediaset) fired against the Campos while Vasile repeated that of firewood until the monkey speaks English or that Rome does not pay traitors.

What a happy time!

It is true that in addition to calling the Italian “asshole”, Maria Teresa put those bombardments of evil in the hands of the courts. The lawsuits piled up. and Vasile, following his custom, anticipated the sentences that he was going to lose and made a pact with his victim. By then, María Teresa had already finished her adventure on Antena 3, as tortuous as it was well paid. And she accepted the outstretched hand of the vengeful CEO, now conciliatory. He distributed alms and Vasile programs among the Fields, who went from being enemies to destroying prodigal daughters. Terelu, whose life had been made impossible with intimate videos, terrible comments and cruel attacks, was also changed by her lawsuits for her work.

Apart from What a happy time! And other spaces, Vasile ended up dragging the entire clan by his chain, even with that Kardashian-style reality show but with cheers and churros. The rest we already know: her mother lost her job, carmen borrego He lent himself for money to all kinds of humiliations, have him caught chair in Save me and ended up militating for the cause, until the magazine was destroyed, and now we are left with Alexandra Rubio on weekends working for the producer of Ana Rosa Quintana.

Apart from this, all of us who have been on sets with Maria Theresa Campos In addition to perceiving her enormous power as a communicator, we know that she was sometimes in a very bad mood and there were days when she was quite despotic to work. To your daughter Carmen Borrego, The one he had as director, he humiliated her many times, and he used to ride some chickens in the middle of the newsroom that everyone who was present remembers.

But, as a former executive who had the privilege of meeting María Teresa in her heyday says, what really matters is whether Teresa enjoyed life, and we think she did. Despite her bad moments, she had them. It is also very likely that she did people more good than harm and it is certain that she taught many. And, above all, she informed, she entertained, and she was a lot of fun: she gave her fabulous audience a good time, who liked her. Hence, she was such a dear person, of whom almost all of Spain has happy memories and that she was there to accompany.
