Well I did copy/paste and it came like that...
Obviously they meant Exonerate...clear...
B-92 is pro western station as you may imagine. I used to demonstrate on streets of Belgrade against fully armed police to keep them going (it was just radio at the time and now they have TV too). But I do not think that they are fair nowadays ,,,actually I think they are frivoling and I don't appreciate it but that's the only one station I can find in English and that's why I am quoting them all the time...

Thank you. They were a necessary voice and the only one at the time to really show what was happening inside Serbia. I haven't listened to them for a while and am sorry to hear they may not be so good anymore.

They are OK in a sense. But they are a little bit "too pro-western" (especially pro EU) and this makes an angle from where they are looking a little bit "out of focus"...let's say so...
In trying very hard not to be "nationalistic" they often look like they work against nation they represent and are part of.
Nationalism is the word that is so ostracized (especially after everything that happened there) but being proud of good things about your nation and working in the interest of that nation in accordance to law is totally legitimate for me. For example I am an Australian now too and all though I am aware of how important are our ties with USA (in every single aspect) I can't just stray my head not to see where USA government is leading Australia at the moment.
Same with Serbia and Europe. Of course Serbia is in Europe, is Europe and should work to become member of EU family...but this can't stop me to criticize EU on every single level. B92 kind of avoid to do that, lately.
