Miguel Ángel Rodríguez, press chief of Isabel Díaz Ayuso, has been at the center of a media storm for his management of the crisis that affects the boyfriend of the president of the Community of Madrid, Alberto González Amador. Following news confirming that González Amador accepted eight months in prison and a significant fine for tax crimes, Rodríguez has used his media influence to try to divert attention and minimize the damage.

His strategy has consisted of launching a series of statements and theories that question the legitimacy of the investigations and judicial processes, suggesting that everything is part of a political persecution orchestrated by Ayuso's adversaries. This includes unsubstantiated accusations against the State Attorney General and claims that private documents are being illegally leaked, which would be a crime.

Furthermore, Rodríguez has manipulated information related to González Amador's financial situation, suggesting, for example, that the Tax Agency owes him money, without providing evidence to corroborate this claim. This tactic seems to seek to confuse public opinion and discredit the accusations against Ayuso's inner circle.

There have also been attempts by Rodríguez to attack and discredit media outlets reporting on the case, including threatening legal action and discrediting specific journalists. This aggressive approach towards the press has intensified concerns about press freedom in Madrid under the Ayuso administration.

The journalistic community and civil society are increasingly alarmed by these attempts at media and judicial manipulation. The credibility and transparency of the Ayuso administration are at stake, with many calling for a deeper and more objective investigation to ensure that justice prevails without political interference.
