In December 1996, The UN (United Nations) General Assembly proclaimed that November 21 will serve as the World Television Day, which also commemorates the date of the first World Television Forum that was held in December 1996.
When the World Television Day 2019 was proposed, the opposition to this declaration took the form of 11 abstentions to vote on a resolution in expressing their opposition, the delegation from Germany said that the World Television Day would be a day for the rich man.
The official statement said: “There are already three United Nations days encompassing similar subjects: World Press Freedom Day; World Telecommunication Day; and World Development Information Day. To add another day does not make much sense… [T]elevision is only one means of information and an information medium to which a considerable majority of the world population has no access… That vast majority could easily look at World Television Day as a rich man’s day. They do not have access to television. There are more important information media and here I would mention radio in particular. We think it is more important to enhance the role of those media than that of television.”
