On the other hand, the editor of Oslobodjenje
, Senka Kurtovic
, believes that the language used then was in the sphere of criminal behaviour, while the language of today she
describes as semi-hatred.She
admits that a new type of language has been used in the media in the recent 10 days or so, as a consequence of the frustrations of the journalists divided along the entity line, which has nothing to do with the profession.
"Unfortunately, we are only conveying what the politicians say.I will not try to beautify the language of our politicians.Oslobodjenje
conveys to the public what the politicians say.On the other hand, in the 10 days since the ruling was published, we have been using the word genocide in commentaries without putting it in quotation marks," Senka Kurtovic
added that they themselves did not allow the use of offensive language and the language of hatred, and that Oslobodjenje
was the last daily in the region that could be accused of allowing that.Oslobodjenje's editor is more surprised at the language of hatred that certain politicians have begun to use than she is at the language of "semi-hatred" in the media.
"If we cannot influence the politicians, all of us doing this job should at least make it clear in our heads, whether we are patriots or journalists.Nobody denies us the right to be patriots, but we must not bring those feelings to our editorial office," Kurtovic
The editor of Sarajevo's Oslobodjenje
, Senka Kurtovic
, said that the problem of the B-H media was that they were not aware of the responsibility that they had towards those who read, watched, or listened to them.
"The problem is also that we are not answerable to anyone, so certain media take too much liberty.They put themselves in the employ of politics, and forget all the principles of our profession," Kurtovic
