WE DISLIKE THE MALTESE CENSORSHIP RULES
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
It is so funny how some national broadcasters understand the meaning of Eurovision Song Contest. While it is suppose to be a celebration of music, a unification of their nation and the European nations, it seems that Malta walks the other way. Our dear friends from Malta (TVM) decided to use censorship and this is why they forbid www.esctoday.com to publish an interview with Kevin Borg.
Maltese broadcaster demanded the interview to be removed from their website with the excuse that MESC 2013 participants deserve equal promotion and they have to ask TVM approval for any interview and promo activities. They threatened to disqualify Kevin Borg is the interview goes public! So for TVM the achievement of an esctoday.com editor to get an exclusive interview is “a breach of rules” and has to be removed.
and we call Belarus a dictatorship!
