PTS No Longer in Running for Gov’t Media Platform 國際影音平台計畫 公視確定出局

The Ministry of Culture delivered a report on the progress of the Public Media Act and other issues to the legislature on April 14. Opposition lawmakers asked about the government’s intent to set up an international programming platform and who will take charge of it now that Public Television Service has been eliminated as a contender.


The government has allocated NT$1 billion to establish an international programming platform. It was interested in having Public Television Service bid to operate the platform, but PTS has now been eliminated as a contender. On April 14, Culture Minister Lee Yung-te told the legislature that the platform will have an independent office space like Hakka TV as well as professional and independent production and broadcast capabilities. He added that it wouldn’t be like what Legislator Cheng Cheng-chien referred to as “little PTS.”
 
So you’re saying that Public Television Service has already been given the death penalty in terms of the international programming platform, that it has been eliminated as a contender. Is that correct? Yes, yes.
 
PTS is no longer in the running, but what about Chinese Television System? Lee said there is zero chance of CTS operating the platform. A public bid will be organized and it will invite the Central News Agency to bid.
 
The Central News Agency has the experience of leading the project, and I thought the final results were quite good. If the CNA’s board of directors passes the resolution to undertake this responsibility, then we will hold a public bid.
 
The media has reported that the Ministry of Culture has set a goal of attracting one million users and 15 million views in one year’s time. Opposition legislators asked why the selection committee members were asked to keep bid information confidential but still divulged details to the media. They asked the ministry to investigate. Lee said the opposition was being unfair.
 
You’re still saying that you’re uncertain whether this violates laws? If that’s the case, then I really think that you have neglected your duties. It’s not what you’re saying, it’s super unfair. Why don’t you just hand me over to the law? You have to investigate thoroughly before I can hand you over to the law. You shouldn’t let your emotions affect your decisions.
 
Lee said reporters have investigative abilities when asked about the media reports, which prompted questions as to whether he was saying other media outlets have insufficient capabilities. During the interpellation, Lee was reminded that he needs to watch his tone while speaking to legislators.
 
 
 
預算高達十億元的「國際影音平台」計畫,公視確定出局,到立法院專案報告的文化部長李永得,再次強調,文化部要的是「客台模式」,有獨立辦公空間、有專業自主的製播能力等,而非立委鄭正鈐所說的「小公視」。
 
文化部長 李永得 vs. 國民黨立委 鄭正鈐表示:「(所以等於說,公視在國際影音平台當中,已經被判了死刑,被淘汰了,對不對?) 對、對。」
 
公視沒機會了?那麼華視呢?部長李永得在國民黨立委萬美玲質詢下,表示百分之百也不會給華視,評估會再以公開性招標的方式,邀請中央社投標。
 
文化部長 李永得表示:「如果中央社,因為它有前導計畫的經驗,而且最後的成果,我認為還不錯,假設中央社的董事會通過決議,願意承擔這個責任,我們會來公開邀標。」
 
有媒體報導,文化部針對國際影音平台計畫招標,需求之一是希望營運一年會員數達100萬人次、瀏覽量達1500萬人次等條件。對此立委萬美玲質疑,依法評選委員對於投標內容與資料要保密,但卻透露給媒體,要求文化部徹查。被萬美玲質疑失職,部長李永得回應不公平。
 
國民黨立委 萬美玲 vs. 文化部長 李永得表示:「(你還認為說,你不知道這樣有沒有違反法令?那我真的覺得,部長你有失職啊!) 不是,萬委員,你這樣講,非常的不公平,請萬委員把我移送法辦好不好?(要移送法辦之前,必須部長,你也要去調查清楚,而不是在這裡意氣用事,動情緒。」
 
投標內容曝光,部長李永得甚至表示,每個採訪記者有其能力報導,遭萬美玲立委反問,是在質疑其他媒體能力不足嗎?雙方你來我往,最後質詢結束,教委會召委林奕華要求部長李永得,注意對委員答詢的態度。
