Georgian mass media published a tape on preparation of special clip2010-03-16 11:44
Georgi Arveladze, the head of Imedi, denies the authenticity of the tape with recorded phone talk, in which he says the aim of the special report on Russian invasion and death of President Saakashvili is intimidating the population.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The tape was published by Georgian mass media on Monday. A man, sounding like Arveladze, talks to a woman, sounding like Eka Tsamashvili, the anchorwoman of the program.
In the talk the woman warns the clip will look too verisimilar, and in case someone turns the TV on in that moment, will believe it's true. The man replies that's how it must be. The woman objects it violated the code of broadcasters' policy, in particular, article 13, and the violation can be subsequently confirmed by the National Commission for Communications.
She calls on him to write everywhere it's a dramatization so that no-one could argue.
The man replies that "Misha [possibly, Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia] talked to me yesterday, asked what were we doing; I said we were doing this. He asked whether it would appear as a usual Chronika [news program]. I said it would, but before it would be said we did a dramatization. He said: no, don't do it, it will kill all the relish."
Arveladze apologized for the TV program, took all the responsibility and said the result appeared to be not the one planned. "Our aim was not to scare the society, but to show the dangers our country really faces", Imedi head said.
