15 Dec The Broadcasting Authority needs a radical overhaul
In today’s ruling the Broadcasting Authority practically is benedicting a state of affairs where it is practically impossible for dissent to be viewed on public television.
If it is the political party that has to send its representatives on public television then
1) PN would not send me because I was very critical and even voted against Budget
2) MLP cannot send me because I do not represent them
So basically if you criticise your party it is impossible to make it to PBS whilst everyone else is saying all sorts of things, behind your back.
Now can the Broadcasting Authority, a constitutional body explain to ALL the Maltese population how are the people supposed to have a right to listen to what a dissident member of parliament like me have to say ? Am I understanding correctly that it is practically impossible ? Who was supposed to send me on PBS? How is the Broadcasting Authority defending balance in public broadcasting?
