Mitte-Frau Gmür took on the SRF on social media and was not satisfied with the answer.
National Advisor SVP Benjamin Fisher also doubts the SRF’s statement of reference to other countries.
In reporting on the situation in Niger, SRF journalists use the French pronunciation.
Central Chancellor Andrea Gmour became alarmed by this and turned off Leutschenbach’s “Wokeness”.
The announcer explains that the French pronunciation is more common in Switzerland.
Recently, a military coup took place in the West African country of Niger. That’s why the country dominates the headlines – also the general SRF. “Tageshau” is mentioned prominently on Dire situation.
But not everyone liked the reports. Lucerne Central Chancellor Andrea Gmur Schönenberger asks herself on the former Twitter post X: “Why was the name of the African country Niger recently pronounced in French ‘Nischär’ on radio and television and no longer in German?”
SRF: ‘Nischer’ is more common than ‘Niger’
In fact, the medium Florian Inhauser used the French version. The media house explains via X: “The reason is the common denominator. In this case, we assume that in Switzerland – with French as the national language – the French version is more familiar to the public than the German one. »
Gmür is not satisfied with the content of the answer. After all, SRF isn’t pronounced “Geneva” in the French version either. However, she thanks the announcer for the decent answer. Because most of the comments are full of “personal slurs”.
Mitte-Gmür: “The awakened debate goes too far for me”
In fact, the State Councilor is facing strong headwinds. Many users accused her of not caring about real problems. Someone accuses her of wanting to collect votes in right-wing constituencies.
Gmür had previously told Blue News: “The discussion of Woke now goes too far for me. We have come to a point where freedom of expression is threatened.” The accusation that she is pimping the right is absurd.
