Round Table on Media in Slovenia

I have just watched some video excerpts of a recent round table about the media situation in Slovenia. It was published by Jani Sever, former editor of Mladina, who started a wonderful site Unfortunately the video is only in Slovene, so the English speaking readers or listeners cannot understand. I wish there were an easy to use tool to translate it. This way, they could hear what is going on in this country.
Excellent Slovene journalists are being labeled as not so good; the irony is that they are good enough for the Associated Press ...
The situation is such that the European Federation of Journalists felt it must say something about it already last year ... According to Slovene Association of Journalists website this year too it has issued a statement, but I cannot find a link in English.
Will things ever change for the better?
