Hermes Binner: “Ricardo Fort deteriorates Culture”
Santa Fe, November 4, 2010
The referent of the Socialist Party and governor of Santa Fe, Hermes Binner, spoke of the cultural deterioration in Argentina caused by “cheap television.” To illustrate this, he used the participation of Ricardo Fort in Showmatch.
Binner said that “sometimes we turn on the TV and see featuring characters that harm the culture of Argentina. It is not good for our kids to see Ricardo Fort.”
The governor of Santa Fe said “Ideally, our children should read books, we should read for them, there we are really going to find another attraction as is the family, as is the neighborhood, as is the community” in an act of housing delivery in Reconquista for textile employees.
Binner said that Fort “adds nothing to a better country” and concluded “I have nothing against Ricardo Fort and against his chocolate factory: on the contrary, they are rich. But we have to build an Argentina with values, education, allowing us to be free and think freely.”
The chocolate maker answered the Socialist. He said “he says that kids should not listen to me, but the truth, it seems better to listen to Ricardo Fort than politicians who steal and let people be killed. You better listen to Ricardo Fort than a newscast, for example.”
Ricardo Fort inherited his factory from his father and was until recently a jury on the show “Bailando por un sueño” of Marcelo Tinelli.
