"Fitna won't be aired on television"
The anti-Koran film from Geert Wilders will not be broadcast on Dutch television, the Volkskrant reports.6 March 2008
AMSTERDAM - The anti-Koran film from Geert Wilders will not be broadcast on Dutch television. The Volkskrant reports that not a single channel wants to cooperate on the project.
The newspaper reports that Freedom party PVV leader Geert Wilders himself no longer believes he will find a broadcaster. No channel wants to agree to Wilders' condition that the film must be shown in its entirety.
Herrman van Gelderen of current affairs programme Netwerk was quoted in the Volkskrant: "We are very hesitant to air the film in its entirety. We do not do that with films from CDA or VVD, nor for the film from PVV. Apart from the fact that we are very concerned about inciting hate or discrimination."
