Public apology from under fire Huang
Updated: 2006-06-27 22:51 The following is China's sports commentator Huang
Jianxiang's public apology letter released after he is criticized for losing his
objectivity during the match of Italian and Australia.
Dear soccer fans and TV viewers around the country:
I have attached too much personal feeling to the match of Italian versus
Australia at the end of the game last night. After I woke up this morning, I
reviewed the video of the match again and I feel there are some injustice and
prejudice in my comment. I will make formal apologies to viewers.
I am familiar with the Italian football and I hope that the Italians can gain
a berth in the last eight, which will make the matches in the further more
exciting, but I have mingled my feeling and the role of my job. It is not a
standpoint that a TV commentator should have. I will apology to those fans who
express their dissatisfaction, opinion and criticism.
I will draw the lesson from this case and remind me of the role of my job and
keep my personal feeling and job balanced. When we live broadcast the matches,
we hope referees can be just, and as a commentator, I will try my best to be
fair and to do a good job.
Wish every fan happiness with the World Cup matches.
