It is very likely due to this statement, said after radical PT and PRD deputies hung up a banner alluding to Felipe Calderón's rumored - with emphasis on rumored - alcoholism
"Really, the Presidency of the Republic itself should give clear, crisp, formal answer in this regard. There is nothing offensive - it seems to me - when someone, if this is the case, is going through a problem of this kind... Does Felipe Calderón have a alcohol problem? Again, this deserves a serious response, formal and official from the Presidency of the Republic itself."Without knowing much of this case or these rumors, as a matter of principle I tend to disagree with the logic of such statements. Why is the president forced to prove a negative - to prove something that he isn't? To put it this way: Following this logic, does he also have to prove he is not the flying spaghetti monster?
That said: Did Aristegui really deserve to be fired from saying what she did? I think not.
