Journalists were silenced by Charter2011-07-01 14:50
Georgia does not give up its attempts to be reputed as the most democratic state of the world community . The Charter of Journalists became another proof of the liberal reforms being implemented in the Republic on a full scale. It is intended to prove that freedom of speech guaranteed by the President Mikhail Saakashvili to his citizens really exists. And that the persecution of mass media employees is not a sign of hard censorship but the cultivation of high ethical principles in the society. Of course. While burning their prisoners in crematoria, Nazies also reassured them that they served for the benefit of the Third Reich.
crematoria, Nazies also reassured them that they served for the benefit of the Third Reich.
The Georgian Council of the Charter of Journalism Ethics is going to hold a civil forum on 4, 5 and 6 July inviting all the interested people, representatives of nongovernmental organizations, members of school and university councils, businessmen and journalists: generally speaking, all those who still suppose that the current regime of the Caucasian Republic is not simply far from democracy, but is a real antonym of it.
"First of all, the society itself requires highly professional and ethical journalism. Only in the environment of such mass media each citizen becomes stronger. The Council will acquaint the invited guests with the essence of the Charter, its mechanisms, considered matters and claim consideration procedures. The purpose of the meeting is to get acquainted with those methods that must be used by every citizen and the entire society to reach the ethical journalism", they noted in the Council.
It is notable that, generally, the regional journalists of Georgia stood for the creation of the Charter swearing they could reject the law "Of the freedom of speech" and were ready to be subject to self-censure. Iya Antadze, Leader of the Center of Social Sciences of the Civil Development Institution, sang praises to the authorities and asserted that the Charter of Journalism Ethics is a very liberal law defending wordsmiths and enabling the support of society's interests, as well as confronting officials of any rank with confidence.
But as far as the Georgians were not able to identify the required items to be followed, some experts of the EU and Council of Europe, democrats of note, joined the work. They naively supposed that the ten principles approved in 1983 in Paris and Prague would help the information sphere and communications to cultivate the social responsibility of mass media and journalists. And for a good reason the right for true information and impartial coverage is the key item among other European ethical principles.
