Ethics group demands Spanish Television correct report on objecting parents

.- The organization Professionals for Ethics has sent a letter to Spanish Television (TVE) demanding it correct a report that claimed some of the parents objecting their children attending the school course Education for the Citizenry did so fraudulently.

The report in question was aired on Saturday, February 28 and leveled the claim that some of the 52,000 complaints came from parents who do not have any children yet.

 “Fifty-two thousand declarations of conscientious objection have been made, not 52,000 complaints,” the organization stated.  The declarations “made by mothers and fathers include the name and school of each student.”  “You can’t be a father or a mother if you don’t have a child who meets those conditions, so it would be very difficult for people to object if they don’t have any children,” the group said.

Professionals for Ethics is demanding that TVE correct the report, “since it does not reflect the truth.”  The group noted that the law requires a correction be made within three days.

It also pointed out that TVE sent a reporter and cameraman to cover the story and that they had access to the same information as other reporters.
