Hate Speech: A 5 Point Test For Journalists PDF Print

Keywords: International, English, hate speech, journalism, test, guidelines, ethics, all media formats, latest resources

Ethical Journalism Network (EJN) published a five point test for journalists to help them identify hate speech and to understand better the possible impact of its dissemination.

The test challenges journalists to think about the status of the speaker, the reach and the objectives of the speech, the content and form of the speech as well as the social, economic and political climate before they decide whether a quotation can be characterised as hate speech.

The moto of the campaign of EJN "Turning the Page of Hate in Media", part of which is the test, is "Don't Sensationalise. Avoid the Rush to Publish. Take a Moment of Reflection.".
