Неприемливо е български автор на един от двата представени в Брюксел доклади за медийния плурализъм да злепоставя СБЖ, подменяйки фактите за приноса на Съюза в защита на колегията и на по-прозрачната медийна среда. Общата кауза изисква друго - солидарност на гилдията

ВАСИЛ ЛЕВСКИ! Колкото и пълно изследване да се направи за него и неговото дело, то ще бъде НЕПЪЛНО, недостатъчно! Каквито и силни думи да изречем или напишем сега ние за Дякона, те ще бъдат СЛАБИ!

Случва се понякога ловците да попадат в собствените си капани. Колкото и опит да са натрупали през годините, колкото и улов да са занесли у дома. Особено, ако броят на плячката от природата надхвърля значително възпитанието и характера на индивида. Е така се зароди и поредния нашенски феномен – дългогодишен практикант на професията да не сдържи в някой момент нерви и да смъмри, че дори да плаши журналист само за зададен от него въпрос.
