Prime Minister Robert Fico said during the week that the upcoming changes will cause trauma in the Slovak opposition.

Deputy Prime Minister for the SNS Tomáš Taraba declared at the briefing that RTVS has been a parody of balance and objectivity for years. He said it was a broken TV.

Taraba described the director of public television, Ľuboš Machaj, as a homeless person covered in foreclosures. “A narrow group of people who end up on PS candidates have made RTVS a party medium. This has nothing to do with plurality. The government’s position is clear, Slovak television and radio should belong to all citizens,” he emphasized.

The head of SNS, Andrej Danko, said that they want to loosen the advertising ceiling so that television can earn more from advertising. “RTVS is not economically sustainable. RTVS would end up bankrupt if the state did not subsidize it,” said Danko.

The opposition strongly opposes these steps. He claims that the coalition is interested in the nationalization of public television.

According to the chairman of the SaS parliamentary club, Branislav Gröhling, the upcoming amendment on public media is an unacceptable attack on RTVS, following the example of Vladimir Putin and Viktor Orbán.

“Once again, Robert Fico is bringing us even closer to Russia and Hungary and distancing us from our Western partners. We face the challenge of stopping Robert Fico and want to convey to the government, Fico, but also to foreign partners that Robert Fico does not really represent what the nation wishes and honors. ” said Gröhling.

“What the government actually wants in this law is to create its own propaganda state television, to create a medium that will servilely help this government,” said the head of Progressive Slovakia, Michal Šimečka.

In response, President Zuzana Čaputová pointed out that the adoption of the new Act on Slovak Television and Radio in the presented version would be in direct conflict with the new European Act on Media Freedom.
