Lou Bondi apologises to Franco Debono

Broadcaster Lou Bondi this evening publicly apologised to Nationalist MP Franco Debono, who had criticised him over the conduct of his programme on PBS.

Writing on his blog, Mr Bondi said: "In two public instances over the last weeks, Franco Debono MP criticised PBS and Bondi+.

"With reference to these criticisms I have no difficulty in stating that the programme never had the intention of offending anyone.

"In case someone, including Franco Debono MP, might have been offended by any programme, I equally have no difficulty to apologise."

Mr Debono made his most recent criticism last Sunday at the meeting of the PN general council where, without mentioning Mr Bondi, he said that broadcasters on PBS should not criticise people unfairly. Dr Debono has also been calling for a reform aimed at making the Broadcasting Authority more effective.
