    “The Broadcast Law was approved by the Argentine Congress in 2009” This law is law, and the Supreme Court is just waiting to see what happens, and after the election they will make the right move, which is respecting the law. There is nothing Clarín can do about it, they are just prolonging the agony.

    It is more than likely to be unconstitutional, that's why they are considering it.

    The Supreme Court are not handing down their descision before the October elections so that the descision will not have a political colouring, it must be seen to be politically neutral!!!!!!!

    The Supreme Court will decide that the clauses are unconstitutional, and if they published this before the election the FpV would lose an enormous number of votes, so the kirchnerist plague better pray that the STJ don't change their minds and hand down the verdict right away!!!!!!!!!!!

    @2 If the law is the law then why is there a supreme court, and why did they even bother to hear this or any other case? You really are an idiot.

    Nostrils..... I mean Gonzo22

    The law is the law!

    And the highest law in the land is the constitution not the legislature dumbass!

    No wonder Argentina descends into military dictatorships so frequently if this is the common view of how their system works.

    No Gonzo22, whatever congress and senate decide, it is NOT law if it is against the constitution.

    Do you have a problem understanding what a constitution is?
