Dateline Warsaw – media, violence and Euro 2012
PR dla Zagranicy
On the show this week: why being a journalist covering Euro 2012 can damage your health; and why it might be unwise for Russian fans to unfurl a banner in Warsaw reading “This is Russia”.
Presented by Peter Gentle
Welcome to another Dateline Warsaw, where journalists chew over the week's top news stories.
While the action on the pitch during the tournament has been exciting, much of the media coverage has concentrated on issues off the pitch, including violence before and after the Poland versus Russia match last Tuesday in Warsaw.
In the studio to discuss off the pitch Euro 2012 issues are Dow Jones Warsaw bureau chief Marcin Sobczyk and FT Mergermarkets' Aleksander Nowacki.
And on the line we also have CEN/Europics News and Photo Agency's Ed Wight, who tells of what it's like to get a black eye for merely doing a journalist's job.
