The mini-case, which was taken care of at the World Hockey Championships by Barbora Žiačiková, has a sequel.
The RTVS editor caused a stir after Jessica Campbell, the assistant coach of the German national team, asked an inappropriate question.
The Finnish media launched a wave of criticism at the head of the Slovak journalist. Photojournalist Juha Leskinen even asked her to be fired and denied her access to sporting events.
It is moderated by former hockey player, world champion from 2002 Richard Lintner.
“RTVS is humanly sorry. We have been in contact with the media manager of the German national hockey team since Wednesday night.
We are trying to arrange a reunion of Barbora Žiačiková and Jessica Campbell so that they can communicate the whole situation and so that Ms. Žiačiková can personally apologize for the misunderstanding, “writes the management of RTVS.
The same portal also asked Žiačková for a statement. She answered through her employer.
“Personally, I am sincerely very sorry about the whole situation. I am deeply sorry for Jessica Campbell and I believe that I will have the opportunity to apologize to her personally in the near future.
I try to do my job, which I love, as best I can. I realize that in this context it was a mistake that I regret. “
