Pakistan Press Foundation calls for ethical journalism
MULTAN – Pakistan Press Foundation (PPF) has called upon journalists to observe journalism’s ethics and demonstrate gender sensitivity while revealing any information or social ills.
A three-day workshop, organized by PPF, concluded at local press club on Friday. It was attended by a number of journalists hailing from print and electronic media from across the district. The workshop reviewed practices in journalism and the code of ethics followed by working journalists.
Focal person Qazi Asif urged the participants to portray real and grassroots issues rather than merely vying for competition or edge over others, saying that such policies are opposed to ethical pratices. He stressed upon media persons to avoid ‘inciting emotions’, and expose real face of the people in their news stories.
He asked journalists not to become judgmental and create confusions in people’s minds through any of their report. In the last session, the participants gave their inputs and recommendations to fulfill the objective of ethical and professional journalism.
