Think of our parents, think of the elderly. I ask this of you as the daughter of a 76-year-old woman who devours television every day. It is the only window that the elderly have to the world, for them it is the truth and what keeps them connected to the rest of the world. Y the news they receive is horrifying”Explains Minerva Piquero in a video recorded with her mobile phone and uploaded to her Twitter profile.

“I am not saying that the truth is not told, but what need to bring testimonies from people who explain that older people are being left to die. Or have a reporter all morning at the doors of a residence because it has been discovered that there were old people living with corpses, “he clarifies.

“This type of information, What does this way of gloating in tragedy bring?“Insists the presenter of Antena 3.” Think of our parents who are at home and panic, like everyone. But it is so sad to see on their faces how they feel when they see this news, “continues Piquero. And suggests that “We can tell positive things too. I am not saying that we do not give the real information, but we do not prime ourselves in this. Why don’t we get more reports on people who are being discharged from hospitals and that is celebrated so much? ”

And concludes: “Do not spend so many hours delighting in the tragedy. A little more sensitivity for our parents. Thank you”.
