Greek TV network cops ban over racist commentary


Greece’s National Council for Radio and Television (ESR) announced on Tuesday the imposition of a 24-hour broadcasting ban on TV channel “E” scheduled for January 10, 2019, as penalty for the offensive comments made by Dimitris Tsoukalas during his show in relation to basketball player Thanassis Antetokounmpo.

E channel is also made to pay 30,000 euros for broadcasting racist statements and low-quality programming. The ESR took into consideration when determining the fine the remorse shown by the channel and the fact that the program in question has already been discontinued, both of which were seen as mitigating factors.
