Ethical Journalism Network om etiske utfordringer i journalistikken

(Oslo 17.01.17) I følge Ethical Journalism Networks nyeste rapport om etiske utfordringer i journalistikken, vitner nyhetsåret 2016 om at det må lanseres tiltak for å håndtere problemstillinger knyttet til journalistisk uavhengighet og etikk. 

Direktør i EJN, Aidan White trekker spesielt frem sider ved mediedekkingen av presidentvalget i USA, Brexit og den humanitære krisen i Aleppo som eksempler på  at det må utvikles mediepolitiske tiltak for å løse utfordringene knyttet til journalistisk mangfold og uavhengighet.
