REM bans Belgrade Happy TV's show for 15 days after comparing women with cows Izvor: N1

The Council of the Regulatory Body for Electronic Media (REM) banned for 15 days the Belgarde Happy TV's from broadcasting its show about farmers, 'Better Country,' because a journalist compared the veterinary procedure of insemination of cows with the method of treating female sterility,

REM punished the TV because the disputed show violated Article 50 of the Law on Electronic Media and Article 20 of the Rulebook on Protection of Human Rights in the Field of Media Services, which, among other things, prescribed the obligation of broadcasters to respect the dignity of a person.

Judita Popovic, a REM member, said the decision could not be considered censorship, as well as that the comparison  "is not a joke, but misogyny, which must not be tolerated."

Slobodan Cvejic, also a member of REM, added that "journalists must know that what they do shapes social consciousness".
