Jorge Lorenzo is sick and tired of seeing his declarations, made in his "99Seconds" VLOG, taken out of context and today he decided to let off steam.
"Before starting the program I would like to make a reflection. Lately several media outlets have completely taken out of context my opinions, regarding riders like Rossi or the Marquez brothers. I always respected and positively valued the importance of sports media because I believe they are the link between sports and fans, with vital importance. What I do not respect, or rather detest, are headlines taken out of context, because they are damaging my image and especially my relationship with the other riders. I understand that the impact and views are important for any digital media, but it cannot be at any cost, especially when you are damaging the athlete's image by taking something he has said out of context. Sorry but I can't ignore it. "
The thing is that Porfuera is right, and finally someone has finally decided to point the finger at the continuous copy-paste of the web by those media (?) who follow motorcycling only through press releases, without ever appearing at a circuit. Not today where, due to the pandemic, access is limited, but always.
It is way too easy to pretend to be journalists in this way. We appreciate Jorge's outburst, but we fear that his is a voice screaming in the desert.
