TV Markíza bags Bush interview

AN INTERVIEW with US President George W Bush by the public service radio station Slovak Radio will not air on its television equivalent, Slovak Television (STV). Instead, Slovak radio is providing the recorded interview to STV's biggest competitor, the private station Markíza TV, the daily SME wrote.

" STV indicated interest in the interview, but Slovak Radio will provide it to Markíza because it is more popular [than STV]," said Slovak Radio spokesperson Ladislava Slezáková.

She explained that Slovak Radio wanted the interview seen by the highest possible number of viewers.

A member of STV management, Branislav Zahradník, did not hide his disappointment. "Unfortunately, there is no loyalty among the public service media."
