Source: BlicThose who are familiar with our public scene know that one should not have illusions about things such as cultural limits, minimum argument standards, correctness etc. In our country, such things are at the rudimentary level, they barely exist. In our reality, a bunch of lies, disqualifying statements and insults poured out at an public officer by the Director of the Radio Television of Serbia (RTS) in an interview to daily papers, and even “editorial policy” of RTS which in the interview of its boss recognizes the news of national importance and (re)broadcasts in its informative program lies and insults, are really not the phenomena which deserve particular attention.
When the attacked denied lies in an official, public announcement, it was repeated, as it should be, wholly or partially, by virtually all relevant media. But RTS did not repeat it, not a word of it. Even in our conditions, it is a phenomenon which deserves serious attention. When compared with this, it even becomes irrelevant who is actually right. The more important question is - what kind of a “public service” is that which serves to its director (or anybody else) to attack (anyone) and does not let the other side to be heard? And what does this kind of “informing” mean to the public? Does it not, such as it is, remind of a time when it was controlled by the famous gurus of “unbiased” informing of the former regime - Matic, Markovic and the rest of that company? Should it not be beyond dispute that it has changed a lot since then?
