Czech Radio: Station not to blame for vulgar language used by Zeman in interview

Czech Radio says it was not at fault over an interview with President Miloš Zeman in which the head of state used a number of vulgar expressions. A spokesperson for the station, Jiří Hošna, said it could not influence the language that reached listeners of Sunday evening’s broadcast in the occasional series Interviews from Lány as it had been live. Mr. Hošna said Czech Radio’s Jan Pokorný, who conducted the interview, had pointed out the inappropriateness of some of the bad language used by Mr. Zeman.
