Reader comment on item: Why I Stand with Geert Wilders
in response to reader comment: the trial now runs parallel with election campaigning, change in media perception.

Reading my own comment clicking the links I found that the dutch newspaper AD replaced their yellow-box quoting Wilders with a quote from Prime Minister Balkenende. I need to correct myself here saying that the media perception has changed for as long as it took to find a less explicit quote from the top politician of the country.

The line ("Lang gehoopt, toch gekomen. De vlag kan uit. Dit slechtste kabinet ooit verdiende het niet nog één dag langer te regeren.") that was in the yellow box is now, in the true sense of now, published on Wilders' party's website: http://www.pvv.nl/
