As a frequent participant in Spanish politics TV shows, I believe that television offers a unique forum for the communication of new ideas, discussion of current events and the fostering of healthy debate. Many a politician embarked upon his or her career due in part to what they had seen on television. TV prevents us from living in isolation with only our own opinions and, used wisely, can provide a window onto the world in which we live. In particular, news programmes enable us to reach an unprecedented level of awareness about the lives of those in other parts of the world.
