Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) today said that it’s meaningless to talk about media policy and whether the state should have ownership in the media or not, until you solve the problem of the influence of tycoons on the media.Functionary of SNS Nebojsa Stefanovic said at the media conference that by tycoons he think of Dragan Djilas and Srdjan Chappes, he said, which are the owners of all marketing seconds and almost all media in Serbia. He said that the SNS has evidence that proofs that firms of Djilas and Chappes have a major impact on the purchase of second on RTS, B92, “and possibly other media.”
