EJN Report on Challenges for Journalism in the Post-truth Era PDF Print

Published: 10 January 2017

Region: Worldwide

EJN_Ethics_in_the_News_ReportThe Ethical Journalism Network (EJN) launched its new report on ethical challenges for media and journalists around the world. Ethics in the News gives journalists some key tips on ethical survival techniques, tips on how to stick to the facts, protect sources, report fairly on migration, identify hate speech, block fake news and guard against war-mongering and propaganda.

In Europe and America the report looks at how media covered the UK vote to leave the European Union and the Trump election which intensified concerns about the revival of racism, extremism and political propaganda across the western world. Ethics in the News analyses fake news and how journalism with a public purpose can be overwhelmed in a do-it-yourself world of communications that has led to a so-called post-truth movement in which facts and expert opinion are left on the sidelines of public discourse.

Rate My Media: Tech Action for More Diversity in the Media PDF Print

Published: 16 December 2016

Region: Worldwide

Rate My MediaWhether it is the latest Star Wars film or your favourite comic book, people can now rate the media they consume every day on the basis of racial equity and inclusion. Rate My Media is the first crowd-sourced website fostering action for a diverse media through more informed consumers and more accountable media.

The starting point of the website is that media should accurately represent the society we live in, but a quick zapping on TV is enough to understand that we don’t see all groups accurately portrayed on screen. As the UCLA Diversity Report highlights, from Hollywood to TV shows, minorities are still underrepresented in the media.
