Czech MPs have criticised Czech public TV for reporting that the US has curtailed financial help for schools in Gaza
15. 10. 2018
This is a second time recently when the public service media in the Czech Republic has been officially criticised.
The regulatory Council for Radio and TV Broadcasting, which is controlled by Czech Parliament, has strongly censured Petr Fischer, the highly respected editor-in-chief of Radio Vltava, a highbrow outlet of the publicly funded Czech Radio, for broadcasting a 35-second excerpt from The Line of Beauty, A Man Booker prize-winning novel by British author Alan Hollinghurst, which was condemned as "pornographic". Liberal critics fear that the editor-in-chief of Radio Vltava will now be forced out, in a move reminiscent of the ongoing media clampdown in Hungary. Member of the Council for Radio and TV Broadcasting Tomáš Kňourek dismissed Hollinghurst as “a homosexual activist dressed as a writer” whose “obscenities indicate the level of social life in Great Britain, a country that is voluntarily flooded with the most repulsive form of Islam”.
