  21. 21. DISCUSSION (?)
  22. 22. My opinion Ø  This is a matter of freedom of expression. Ø  The shot itself is just an anecdote within a story. Taken away from the it, can be misunderstood. Ø  Bestiari Il·lustrat was a TV show targeted to a minority audience that understands, within a context, opinions expressed by interviewers such as J. Domínguez. Ø  This happened within a context of discredit on Spanish monarchy and political tension Catalonia-Spain.
  23. 23. Your opinion? Ø Freedom of expression or felonies against the Crown? Ø What would happen… in your country? Ø Questions? Comments?
