La pandemia ha aumentado las audiencias de los medios de comunicación estatales de Europa, con los europeos recurriendo a las noticias basadas en hechos, según la asociación de medios y estudios académicos sobre las emisoras.

Todos los canales de televisión, radio y medios digitales han experimentado aumentos, especialmente en Europa occidental.

Pero mientras el público parece estar agradecido, las emisoras estatales del continente se enfrentan a una doble amenaza. Los gobiernos populistas de Europa Central han estado o están buscando reducir su independencia editorial, transformándolas en portavoces oficiales, advierten activistas de derechos humanos y periodistas.

En Europa occidental, por el contrario, los gobiernos de centro-derecha se ven sometidos a una presión cada vez mayor por parte de legisladores conservadores y populistas para desfinanciar a las emisoras públicas.

La atención en las últimas semanas se ha centrado en la televisión checa y en lo que críticos del gobierno populista del primer ministro Andrej Babis dicen son esfuerzos para politizar su junta directiva y socavar al equipo de alta dirección de la emisora ​​antes de las elecciones parlamentarias de octubre.

La semana pasada, la Unión Europea de Radiodifusión (EBU), una asociación comercial, instó a los legisladores checos a proteger la independencia de la emisora ​​estatal del país, diciendo que Ceska Televize es "la marca de noticias más utilizada en la República Checa, con el 60% del país utilizando sus servicios al menos semanalmente".

Czech head of state Miloš Zeman is known for his controversial statements that keep him in the public eye. And this week he stirred up a strong response after suggesting that public service television broadcaster Czech Television be nationalized because it is, he alleges, a mouthpiece for one political party alone. And the president appears willing to follow up his words with action.

 

President Miloš Zeman made the initial comments in answers on a well known politics news server. He said that instead of being paid for by viewers through annual payments, the public broadcaster should be financed directly by the state. That, he suggested, would solve the current situation where he claimed the public broadcaster was a mouthpiece for just one political party, the centre-right TOP 09. It’s not the first time the head of state has made such comments.
But the president’s spokesman, Jiří Ovčáček made it clear Zeman is willing to go further, saying that changes to the broadcaster’s financing should be debated in parliament and that the president wanted to discuss the whole issue with ANO leader and finance minister Andrej Babiš.
And the ANO leader, who apparently feels slighted by his recent television coverage over the so-called Stork’s Nest affair, is reported to be in favour of direct state payment and control saying Czech Television’s finances are unclear and political bias is sometimes clearly seen.
On the small screen at least Czech Television has played down the latest attack. But in an official statement spokeswoman Alžběta Plívová spelled out the principles of public service broadcasting.
“Public sector broadcasting is in general a pillar on which civic liberties are based. It is a guarantee of independent journalism and that is why in no democratic country in Europe is there a state-administered television as such.”
She added that payments from viewers is regarded by the grouping of European broadcasters, the EBU, as the best way of ensuring political independence for them.
