The minister reported to the House last year that people from D66 had not interfered with the documentary about their party leader, but later this turned out to be incorrect. He based himself on information he had received from the VPRO, a spokesperson for the ministry said afterwards. Slob also now says that the broadcaster could have answered him “a little more carefully”. The VPRO itself remained behind the information provided.
According to Slob, it is now up to the Media Authority to assess whether the documentary complied with the Media Act. He himself wants to keep his distance from that. He emphasizes that he has not spoken to Kaag in ‘back rooms’ about the offending documentary. He considers that “a red line” and, according to him, was also inappropriate.
The Commissariaat does not focus specifically on the Kaag documentary, but conducts broader research into possible political influencing of (public) media.
