A tale to cheer

Posted by Helen Monday, July 09, 2007

As you would expect, Netherlands has a public broadcasting company and there is no need to wonder which way it might lean politically. Here is a tale of comeuppance.

The conservative columnist Joshua Livestro was invited to contribute to the Sunday evening politics show, Buitenhof, presumably to provide that famous balance that public broadcasting corporations are supposed to have but rarely do. Almost immediately he ran into problems of, well, censorship.
