“No news is good news”, the old dictum goes. But someone should explain to Mariano Rajoy, Spain’s prime minister, that it only qualifies as good news if there really is no news. This doesn’t mean firing as many journalists as you can. Even if you sack almost everybody from TV and radio, as will soon be the case if the purge of Spanish public-sector broadcasting is to continue, there will still be news, and that news will presumably be just as bad as it has been up until now.
