We, the journalists of the Austrian Public Broadcasting Corporation (ORF), stand for an independent ORF. We are exclusively committed to journalistic ethics and to our audience. The independence of the public broadcasting service, is guaranteed in the Austrian constitution. We will not be denied this independence, neither through party political wishes nor through the obvious willingness of the ORF Executive Board to gratify such wishes. On December 23rd the Director General of the ORF announced a number of job appointments, which are obviously motivated by party politics. We find these appointments outrageous in two ways. Due to austerity programs the number of jobs for editorial staff has been cut to an unbearable degree. At the same time, there seem to be plenty of financial resources available to create new positions in order to fulfill political deals. To what extent these planned job appointments are considered to be the the result of deals between political parties and the ORF Executive Board, has also been pointed out in the public debate of the last weeks. Due to the resulting impression that the independence of our journalistic work can no longer be guaranteed, we are convinced that the course of action taken by the ORF Executive Board will greatly damage the reputation of the ORF. Therefore we request the Director General to rescind all the plans that damage the reputation of the ORF as an independent media enterprise. We call for Austrian legislative body to establish framework requirements that strengthen the independence of the ORF. This would include, among other things a completely renewed supervisory board and improved rules and regulations for ORF-journalists. The ORF belongs to the people of Austria – not to political parties. To further emphasize that we will continue our protest. Not produced by the ORF. Only private camera-equipment and private-editing computers have been used for the production of this movie.
