Insiders talk about “dozens of reports.”

A spokesperson for NOS said: “An inventory consists of, among other things, knowing the nature and impact of the signals and the steps that need to be taken to deal with this and prevent it from happening in the future.” According to the spokesperson, no one has been suspended from work.

Correspondent support

Janke Dekker, president of the Mores Foundation, the center for reporting unwanted behavior in the Dutch cultural and creative sector, cannot say whether alleged abuses in NOS Sport have also been reported. “We are not allowed to report who from which organization informed us. He also informed us immediately afterwards The world goes on: We receive reports at the broadcast level. I can’t specify more. Look, NOS is also affiliated with Mores, so we also have a connection on that, but we’re independent. We do not meddle in politics, but only help correspondents, especially when they are not listened to. Then we make sure the reporters are heard.”
