Media Relations/Advocacy
Sources of Stories and Information: How Civil Society Organisations can Contribute to the Improvement of Media Coverage of Diversity PDF Print

Antonia Presentation 2Keywords: media relations, Civil Society Organisations, NGOs

By Antonia Meszaros, News Anchor, Hungarian TV, 2010

In this excellent presentation, Antonia Meszaros, a news anchor on Hungarian TV, details some of the ways that Civil Society Organisations (CSO) representing discriminated groups could help the media to improve coverage of diversity. This resource consists of a video presentation (in 3 parts, below) as well as notes from the presentation (attached).

Antonia describes how the quality and sensitivity of media coverage is not always good partly because of the lack of time and funding available to journalists, and how with a little thought and effort, CSOs can actually help the media to do their job better, primarily through putting themselves forward as sources of stories and information as well as funding.
