Juana Dolores ignites the networks with her interview with Xavier Graset

Barcelona“I came here to shit on everything”. Juana Dolores left Xavier Graset speechless yesterday the interview they did in More 324. The Catalan writer, actress and poet starred in one of the most tense and uncomfortable interviews when she severely criticized the results of the last 28-M elections and, specifically, the coverage that TV3 has done.

Dolores accused the public channel of being “the television of the Catalan bourgeoisie that hides behind social democracy, which is the cancer of the working classes right now.” The writer also added that these workers “suffer day after day from the ineptitude of their politicians” and also “of public television journalists”. Graset answered him: “But if we do everything wrong, if everything is shit and piss, what do we do?” The presenter was trying to resume the interview, although it was difficult for him to put a spoon in front of an unleashed Dolores.

Graset, who has been leading this space for 8 seasons on 3/24, ended up joking about Dolores’ repeated charges in the program and TV3’s treatment of the elections, arguing that journalists could not “shit on everything” because they tie: “I wear a tie because I’m fat and that way you can’t see my belly, that’s why I wear a tie, but I’m the same with a tie as without a tie,” said the journalist.

The discomfort was evident from the first second of the conversation, when the presenter asked him how he was: “Strange to be on public television that validates Junts and validates Trias”, the artist replied. From there, it took on a harsher, more irreverent tone as it progressed. Juana Dolores presented her new collection of poems, Catalan requiem. And if a nation parading on a red carpetand he admitted that he had been waiting for a long time to be the protagonist in this interview space: “Today was my big day”.

However, he took advantage of the program not to talk about his book, but to show his displeasure with Trias: “Because I the red carpet I extend it to the working class and not to businessmen, as the fucking old man from Trias used to say, let’s see if a meteorite also falls on him and stop saying parides”, etzibar said. Graset, surprised, asked him to stop the insults. Before, Dolores had wished that a meteorite would also blow up the Ona Bookstore, managed by Iolanda Batallé, who had intervened in the program as a talk show host and had positioned herself as satisfied by Trias’ victory.

The journalist of More 324 he tried to confirm himself by saying that they are looking to “do the job well done”, to which the artist replied: “Don’t do it. Let’s see if the director resigns or the group of old people who are also behind TV3 and they do something better if young people come in, but don’t do it.”

Juana Dolores also stressed that she was indifferent to everything, both her book and literature, and that the only thing she wanted was for “the working classes of this country to organize and eat everything at once”. A militant close to Marxism, she angrily stated that “unfortunately” her position as a militant, and not as a writer, must come before her: “Because otherwise nobody does it in this country; but well, I sacrifice myself”.

After just over ten minutes of the interview, the writer said that she didn’t have “much more to say” and Graset, faced with the surreal situation, suggested that she leave it at that. After a reading of some verses from Requiemthe journalist dismissed Dolores saying that he had given them “a review as if to say “We do everything wrong, we do everything shitty and piss”, but that they left with “the joy of having had her with this state of mind, but of his requiem which is of the nation”.

The interview did not take long to go viral and generate conflicting opinions. There are those who think that his speech was brilliant, others who think the criticisms are out of place and some, directly, did not quite believe it. She, a regular polemicist on Twitter, limited herself to making two comments that did not even directly mention the interview. In the first, he wrote: “I have nothing to lose, I was born with nothing”, which by mid-afternoon already had nearly 100,000 views and accumulated a hundred long responses.

A second tweet added a little more fuel to the fire: “those who criticize my forms… 🥱”, tweeted the writer, in a message that also exceeded a hundred comments.

Among the responses, there was consensus that it had been an awkward interview and a memorable television moment. On the content, however, the division was very clear.
