The spokesman for President Miloš Zeman, Jiří Ovčáček, says a recently launched video service showing appearances by the head of state are intended as a counterweight to state broadcaster Czech Television, Echo24.cz reported on Saturday. Mr. Ovčáček told the news site that his office had started posting the videos as Czech TV did not carry objective reports about Mr. Zeman’s visits to the country’s regions. In two months such videos have 50,000 views, he said. While they have hitherto been circulated via Twitter they will soon begin appearing on the president’s Facebook page.
