A RECENT survey shows 30.6 percent of Slovaks think some government officials engage in media intimidation, and 22.3 percent say criticising the media is justified, said Polis Slovakia agency CEO Jan Baránek.
The telephone survey, conducted by Polis Slovakia for the M.E.S.A. 10 (Centre for Economic and Social Analyses) consulting group, asked respondents: How do you see the current approach taken by Slovak Government officials vis-a-vis the media?
Almost 25 percent said they couldn't tell, and 22.2 percent of the respondents gave other answers, the TASR newswire reported on October 2.
The survey was carried out on a sample of 1,012 respondents from September 22-24.
