- TV The awkward moment of a reporter of The Last Night with young people partying in Magaluf
Isa Balado is a reporter who works for En boca de todos, Cuatro's program. Viewers were able to watch on Tuesday, September 12, how she suffered a live sexual assault while she was doing her work on Calle Duque de Alba, in central Madrid. A man came over, touched her ass and asked her what channel she was from.
The journalist tried to continue with the story she was covering. From the set, Nacho Abad asked him to stop. She confronted the aggressor: "As much as you want to ask what channel we are from, do you really have to touch my ass? I'm doing a live show and I'm working." The man denied it and then asked him to tell the truth. He ended up being arrested by the National Police.
Harassment of female reporters
The moment starring Isa Balado has gone viral on the networks and has given rise to other people rescuing similar situations. Verónica Sanz recalled the moment she covered the Tomatina in Buñol (Valencia) in 2011 and confessed that she had a bad time. "Here you get absolutely everything," he said live at the time.
Más Vale Tarde reviewed other similar episodes. It included the one that Sara Rincón lived in March 2022 in Warsaw (Poland). "At the time I received a flurry of criticism and insults for condemning a guy who threatened to kiss me live," he wrote in a tweet.
Gema Soler had to dodge a man who tried to kiss her while doing a live show next to the Mestalla stadium in Valencia last June. Then, the professional defined the harasser as "unpresentable".
Jero Mut, a journalist who works for IB3, exposed the aggressions he suffered during his coverage of a party in Sóller (Mallorca) in 2022. She was interviewing young men live when a man grabbed her and wanted to kiss her.
At the 2018 World Cup in Russia, several female reporters were harassed. Maria Gomez, who was covering the event for Mediaset, showed how a man would come up to kiss her while she was doing her job. Another video that went viral at the time shows how a man grabs, touches the chest and kisses Colombian journalist Julieth González.
They also denounced the harassment suffered by several sports journalists in Brazil, such as Julia Guimarães and Laura Zago. The first confronted a man who tried to kiss her: "Don't do that. Don't ever do that again, ok? I haven't given you permission to do that. Never again, ok? It's not polite and it's not right. Don't do that with a woman again. Respect."
