I don't recall so far reading any statements by Pope Francis (or about any actions), before or after his election, in favor of Tradition per se, the traditional liturgy, TLM movement, etc.

Is it that the media is choosing to ignore such statements, or that such statements are few and far between??

If the former, then we trads have to get the message out; if the latter, we need to blitzkrieg the new pontiff with our trad concerns.
There are no quotes about the Current Pontiff supporting Tradition because they don't exist.

The closest thing in appearance is him using Benedict XVI's Ferula. That is all.

Nothing in favor of the TLM, Latin, Gregorian Chant, Ad Orientem, Ecclesia Dei communities, SSPX, etc, etc??  Searching the internet, I dont seem to find anything either.  Keyboard Warrior
Concerning traditionalists (depending on the definition) or the TLM, I don't know of any.  But he has certainly made quotes in favor of Tradition as a whole (he of course often speaks in favor of various truths belonging to Tradition).  See for example, Lumen Fidei 40 or his April 12, 2013 address to the Pontifical Biblical Commission.

What about his alleged introduction of the TLM days after SP? Was it a rumour only?

Thats the only thing I can think of, but even that is disputed, since apparently the one TLM he introduced was mixed with Novus Ordo elements.  But I accept that as one good thing nonetheless.
I knew there was something:

Also, it's such a shame that Italian bishops wanted the use of TLM to be restricted again.
Well there was the incident where some Italian Bishops approached the new Holy Father, asking if he could consider repealing Summorum Pontificum, but Francis said no.

EDIT: Ah, I see PolishTrad already posted it.

About the TLM in Buenos Aires:

Testimony from Bishop  Rifan, of the Apostolic Administration of St. John Vianney, Campos (admittedly not much):

Then, of course, there's the whole saga dealing with the FFI, amply discussed in other threads.

That is the one thing I was going to mention.
