DR in big roars: - It must not happen

Since that Wednesday evening was dazzled up for 'Studio' on the DR, offered the evening's program, among other things, on a feature with racing driver Jan Magnussen, as the hosts Mette Bluhme Rieck and Ulla Essendrop in the community interviewed.

In the news told the bank about his and his famous son, racing driver Kevin Magnussens, future of the common talk show that will be held in the circus building in Copenhagen in February, and which you must fork out 520 dollars, if you want to have your fingers in a standardbillet.

along the Way, in the news ran a text at the bottom of the screen, where there was standing the following:

'On Tuesday, may racerkørerne and konkurrencemenneskerne Kevin and Jan Magnussen experienced in a joint interview. How large is the competition in their relationship?'.

On the talk show in the circus building to Ulla Essendrop host, and despite the personal interests she has in the talkshow, she was in prime time in 'the Studio' still set to interview one of talkshowets major protagonists - Jan Magnussen.

And just the fact is extremely problematic and decidedly against the DR's rules.

It admits Anders Thomsen, who is the editor of 'the Studio', in a mail sent to Ekstra Bladet.

'It is vital that there must not be questioned by the DR's integrity, credibility and independence. It means the bl.a., that the DR's staff should be independent of the personal and economic interests in relation to the work carried out in the DR, he writes in the mail, and continues:

'It could be questioned in this feature, and it is a mistake that must not happen, which has also been made clear to all involved', says the on.

According to the editor, it wasn't the plan that Ulla Essendrop should have been a part of this feature on Wednesday evening. But because of a series of coincidences, it happened anyway.

'Ulla Essendrop had originally not værtstjansen on the 'Studio' yesterday, but since in the last minute was made on the plan, ended up she is on guard instead of one of the other hosts. More unfortunate coincidence makes that Ulla is with yesterday's broadcast, along with Jan Magnussen, which was not planned and should not have happened. It is very regrettable, since it is in conflict with the DR's guidelines', says Anders Thomsen.

He also stresses that with the DR will do everything in their power, that a similar mistake does not happen again.

'It was Mette Bluhme, who was the primary interviewer of Jan Magnussen, but it is nonetheless a clear mistake, as both the STV and the Bermuda Production, which produces 'the Studio', as well as the DR, of course, regrets. There are as a result of it already been working on a tightened procedure, so it can't happen again', he writes in the email.
