Swiss panel rejects claim of unfair TV coverage about Trump

GENEVA (AP) — Switzerland’s independent audiovisual watchdog says the Swiss public TV broadcaster wasn’t out of line with two programs on President Donald Trump that drew public complaints for alleged bias against the U.S leader.

The Independent Complaints Authority for Radio and Television on Friday rejected the complaints alleging the programs conveyed “a unilaterally negative image of Donald Trump.”

One complaint argued an RTS journalist conducted a softball live interview in January 2017 with then-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, talking about Trump. The authority said the interview was “leading,” but didn’t violate guidelines about fair representation.

The other complaint involved a debate on Trump’s health and mental state. Some authority members considered the subject problematic from a “human dignity” standpoint, but the body decided Trump’s own doctor had made the issue public.
