Big Brother Croatia Update: What You Don't Know…

It was inevitable that the highlights of Marina's and Filip's discussion about Paganini would be repeated on the pages of Slobodna Dalmacija.

And it was also inevitable that the at least one of the journalists criticising Filip and Marina would show the same level of ignorance.

In today's Slobodna Dalmacija Sandro Pogutz speculated that Filip asked stupid question about Paganini in a clumsy attempt to mimic Zlatko, "famous contestant of Big Brother Germany who won the show after showing complete lack of knowledge about Shakespeare".

Pogutz is, of course, wrong. Zlatko Trpkovski became famous, but he didn't win the show. He got evicted after couple of weeks and became instantly famous. The actual winner of the show, quiet East German carpenter John – German equivalent of Saša (Sasa) – was instantly forgotten by media.

That doesn't justify Pogutz. Unlike Filip Voloder and Marina Bajlo, he, as a journalist, had the professional duty to present correct information to his readers.
