SBS Union Urges "Today & Tomorrow" to Become YesterdayOne-hundred members of the Seoul Broadcasting System(SBS) labor union held a rally in the company's main building in Yoido, Seoul on October 6. Union members are protesting the broadcasting company's inclusion of a new current affairs program named 'Today & Tomorrow' in its fall lineup because the program was arranged by external pressure - i.e. the government.
The 'Today & Tomorrow' program, which will feature various experts' discussions on political and social issues in Korea, is supposed to air at 11 p.m. on Tuesdays beginning October 19.
The labor union insisted in its resolution that SBS should cancel the program now that growing suspicions indicate the program was conceived by 'outside sources', which then pressured the broadcaster to carry the show. The union made it clear that it does not oppose the broadcasting of a legitimate new talkshow or current affairs program.
