Antonio García Ferreras rubs his hands. La Sexta is called this Sunday to be again the most viewed and followed on election night. For more than ten years La Sexta has been surpassing La 1, the institutional chain in the face of political data. ORone of the reasons for that surprise It was due to the irruption of expectant formations such as Podemos and the new resources brought by the private chain: more guests and connections, which generated more intrigue, and an invention of the coverage director himself.

The conjectures of agreements, pacts, that clarified even more what the night threw.
