IFJ Says United States Media Plan “A Dangerous Shift of Power at the Expense of Democracy”

The International Federation of Journalists today called on regulators to “come clean and give full disclosure” over plans to allow the some of the world’s largest media groups to tighten their grip on the world’s largest media market in the United States.

Michael Powell, chairman of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), has proposed changes in media ownership rules that signal a “new and dangerous shift of media power at the expense of pluralism and democracy” warned the IFJ. The IFJ says that there should be full public disclosure of the plans, which are being kept confidential in advance of an FCC vote on June 2.

Under the proposal, it is reported that two existing cross-ownership rules, one that prevents a company from owning a newspaper and a broadcast station in the same city and another involving radio and TV station ownership in a market, would be combined to create a single rule, but most existing restrictions would disappear.

Other changes will allow media companies the right to hold up to 45 per cent of the national television audience - an increase of 10 per cent over the existing limit - while the rule that limits TV station ownership will be altered so a company can own two TV stations in more markets and three in larger cities like New York and Los Angeles.

“This is giving control the news and flow of information to a handful of media giants,” said Aidan White, IFJ General Secretary, “It is a process that will diminish the diversity of ideas and opinions and will marginalize minority opinions and dissent."

The IFJ says media concentration rules need to be tightened, not relaxed and cites a worrying trend of conglomerates exercising editorial control over media services at the expense of journalistic independence:

* In Canada the IFJ and media unions have protested over a “one-size fits all” editorial policy imposed on editors by the company CanWest, which owns a network of newspapers and televisions outlets across the country;

* In Italy the conflict of interest of media magnate Silvio Berlusconi who combines his role as Prime Minister with control of most of the country’s television networks has caused widespread consternation;

* And in a media network that stretches over five continents, News Corporation chief Rupert Murdoch (who owns Fox Network, one of the prime beneficiaries of FCC changes) has a notorious history of editorial interference, most recently in his support for the US and British line in the Iraq war, a line slavishly followed by his entire network of more than 150 media outlets.

“The FCC is supposed to regulate the airwaves in the public interest," said White, “But handing over the jewels of a nation’s information and cultural heritage to huge corporations will not satisfy the public need for diverse media sources. This is simply politicians delivering glittering prizes to their friends in the media.”

“Democracy depends upon the capacity of many voices to be heard,” says the IFJ, “and the FCC will stifle the expression of different opinions by bowing to industry pressure for change which has its roots in commercial advantage not quality programming.”

The IFJ says that the opposition to changes in ownership rules has been particularly strong among media and journalists’ trade unions, including the IFJ’s affiliates The Newspaper Guild-CWA, the American Federation of Radio and Television Artists (AFTRA), the National Writers’ Union and The Writers Guild (East).

“The anger of media staff is well-founded,” said White. “They see a massive lobby for change by many big media companies, without the public being properly engaged in the debate. At the same time, the unions are aware that easing media ownership rules often leads to a deplorable decline in professionalism, working conditions and media quality.”

On June 2, the FCC's five commissioners will vote on the proposals. The Republican members say that existing rules are obsolete with the emergence of cable and satellite television and the Internet, but the Commission’s two Democrats say Michael Powell is rushing through an important process that needs more public comment.

”This process is flawed and dangerous for democracy,” said Aidan White. “The role of media as watchdogs is weakened when dominant newspapers merge with major TV stations, and the public need to be brought into the picture before the voting starts.”

IFJ Demands End to Military “whitewash” After Top Journalist is Shot Dead in Palestine

Only hours after a new global campaign was launched by media leaders demanding that attempts to kill journalists should be made a war crime, a freelance journalist was shot dead in controversial circumstances by Israeli forces in Palestine.

Award-winning cameraman James Miller was filming the demolition of houses for a documentary in the Gaza town of Rafah, the scene of earlier disturbances, when he was shot in the neck. Israeli army spokesmen said he was hit as troops fired in defence, but other witnesses say Miller and two colleagues were simultaneously filming and waving a white flag as they walked toward the tank.

“This is devastating news for journalists,” said Aidan White, General Secretary of the International Federation of Journalists. “This killing, like other recent deaths in Palestine and Iraq, cries out for a systematic process of independent investigation by respected international authorities.

“There must be end to military whitewash covering up gross negligence in the chain of military command that leaves journalists dead and injured.”

The IFJ says the circumstances of Miller’s death suggest reckless disregard for life on the part of the Israeli forces. “This killing must be subject to proper independent investigation and not brushed aside with routine expressions of regret.”

Miller was internationally respected for his film work. His production Beneath the Veil, about life under the Taliban, won a Royal Television Society award, and his work Innocents Lost for Channel Four, was an Emmy-winning investigation into human rights abuses against children throughout the world.

The incident came shortly after the launch of the International News Safety Institute in Brussels yesterday.

The Institute is a global coalition of more than 100 news media, journalists and press freedom groups, which is calling for greater protection for journalists and media staff. The meeting in Brussels, which was addressed by journalists’ leaders and leading media executives from Reuters, CNN, the BBC, Al-Jazeera and major newspapers, also called for the targeting of journalists and killing of journalists, either deliberately or as a result of gross negligence, to be made official war crimes under international law.

Millers’ death brings the total of journalists and media staff killed this year to 37.

Last Call for Entries for the 2003 Natali Prize

The International Federation of Journalists issues a final call for entries for the 2003 Natali Prize. The deadline for entries is 31 May.

One of the world’s most prestigious journalism prizes is the Natali Prize for Journalism: Excellence in Reporting Human Rights, Democracy and Development, which was established by the European Commission in 1992 and is administered by the IFJ.

The prize is awarded to print and on-line journalists who have demonstrated a striking insight and particular dedication to the reporting of human rights issues within the context of the development process.

This year one Natali prize will be awarded to a journalist working in each of the following five regions:

· Europe (EU member and non-member states)

· Africa

· Asia and the Pacific

· the Arab World, Iran and Israel

· Latin America and the Caribbean

The winners of the 2003 Natali Prize will be selected by an independent jury made up of nine respected media and human rights experts from the five regions covered by the prize. The nominees - three from each region - will be announced as soon as the jury has reached a decision at their meeting in Brussels at the end of July.

At the prize giving ceremony, which will take place at the International Press Centre in Brussels on 2nd October, EU Commissioner for DG Development, Mr. Poul Nielson, will award each of the winners a Natali Trophy and afinancial award of EUR 10,000.

Leader of the Turkish-Cypriot Community

Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus

By Fax: +90 392 22 722 52

Vienna, 7 May 2003

Your Excellency,

The Vienna-based South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO), a network of editors, media executives and leading journalists in South East Europe and an affiliate of the International Press Institute (IPI), strongly condemns the ongoing inhuman treatment of the Turkish-Cypriot journalist Shener Levent, publisher of the AVRUPA-AFRIKA newspaper.

According to information before SEEMO, on the night of Saturday, 4 May 2003, Shener Levent went to the Turkish roadblock in order to cross into the area of Nicosia, but was stopped by Turkish-Cypriot authorities in civilian clothes and not allowed to leave the so-called "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus". Consequently, Shener Levent could not meet his colleagues from the Union of Cyprus Journalists, who were waiting for him for a scheduled meeting.

In SEEMO's opinion, the actions of the authorities against Shener Levent are a violation of the principles of human rights treaties and other instruments, as well as international law.

Therefore, SEEMO denounces the action of the Turkish regime and supports the Cypriot journalists and people, who gathered on 6 May at the Ledra Palace checkpoint in order to demonstrate their support for Shener Levent.

SEEMO demands the immediate and unconditional release of Shener Levent and other journalists in the "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus". We further urge that your authorities respect the fundamental principles of international law and basic human rights, including the principles of freedom of opinion and expression, and the free flow of information.

We thank you for your attention.

Yours sincerely,

Vienna, 2 May 2003

Mr. Milo Djukanovic

Prime Minister

Podgorica

Montenegro

By Fax

 

Your Excellency,

The Vienna-based South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO), a network of editors, media executives and leading journalists in South East Europe and an affiliate of the International Press Institute (IPI), is deeply concerned about the decision of the Employment Centre of Montenegro to stop advertising available jobs in the Montenegrin daily, Vijesti.

On 29 April, the Employment Centre, the government institution responsible for employment policy, stopped submitting material for publication in Vijesti after five years of cooperation, thereby depriving Vijesti's readers of information regularly printed in the newspaper's Wednesday supplement, "Available Jobs". Because there was no official notice from the Employment Centre about ending this cooperation, Vijesti's editor-in-chief Slavoljub Scekic called the Centre's director, Branimir Bojanic, to ask for the reasons behind the decision. Bojanic's answer was, "Do you, Mr. Scekic, read your newspaper?" According to SEEMO's sources, Mr. Bojanic had personally extended the contract with Vijesti less than two months earlier.

SEEMO is informed that the Employment Centre has now decided to publish future advertisements in the daily newspapers Pobjeda and Publika, which together have a circulation of only 10,000 copies.

In SEEMO's opinion, the Employment Centre's decision to end its cooperation with Vijesti is politically motivated since Vijesti has the largest circulation of any newspaper in Montenegro (20,000 copies) and is the independent daily which enjoys the greatest trust among the country's citizens. According to the most recent CEDEM polls, Montenegro's citizens put their largest trust in Vijesti (21.6 per cent), followed by Dan (14.8 per cent), Pobjeda (13.8 per cent), Vecernje Novosti (7.1 per cent) and Publika (3.4 per cent).

Unfortunately, this step taken by the Employment Centre is reminiscent of past decisions taken during Milosevic's dictatorship in Serbia and the unified DPS rule in Montenegro.

SEEMO urges Your Excellency to revise this decision by the Employment Centre, since there is a valid contract, which obliges it to further advertise with Vijesti under conditions signed by both parties.

We thank you for your attention.

Yours sincerely,

Oliver Vujovic

Ovaj je Dan slobode medija više nego ikoji dosad trenutak da se novinari ujedine i iskažu solidarnost u prokazivanju zastraširanja, represije i cenzure. To je i trenutak za akciju da bi se ukazalo na opasnost s kojom su novinari èesto suoèeni.

Da bi se što bolje obilježio ovogodišnji Dan slobode medija, IFJ je s brojnim medijskim organizacijama, novinarskim druruštvima i grupama potpore slobodi medija stvorio koaliciju i utemeljio Meðunarodni institut za sigurnost novinara (INSI) - globalnu kampanju za kulturu sigurnosti u medijskoj industriji i za novinarstvo vrijedno življenja u cijelom svijetu.

INSI æe službeno biti otvoren 2. svibnja 2003. u Meðunarodnom press centru u Bruxellesu. Istovremeno æe se održati sastanak u organizaciji UNESCO-a na Jamaiki, kampanje za slobodu medija u Londonu, a glavni dogaðaj, otvaranje Institutai prethodit æe obilježavanju Dana slobode medija u cijelom svijetu.

INSI je globalna mreža sigurnosti medija koju je utemeljio IFJ u suradnji s Meðunarodnim press institutom (IPI), a podupire je više od 100 grupa iz svijeta novinarstva, zaštite ljudskih prava i slobodu medija.

Institut æe poticati konkretne akcije i njegovati najbolju praksu treninga za veæu sigurnost i pomoæ novinarima i njihovim ekipama. Detaljno navedene ciljeve naæi æete na Internetu (http://www.newssafety.com). Pozivamo sva udruženja novinara da se ukljuèe u kampanju i podrže INSI.

Što možete uèiniti

· Sva udruženja bi svojim vladama trebala pisati i obavijestiti ih o utemeljenju INSI-ja.
· Udruženja bi trebala pisati medijskim organizacijama pozivajuæi ih da s novinarima i ostalim osobljem rade u smjeru koji je naznaèio INSi kako bi se prihvatila pravila sigurnosti zaposlenih u medijima. Sve bi medijske organizacije trebale u svoeje kolektivne ugovore unijeti èlanke o sigurnosti i treningu svih novinara.
· Udruženja bi trebala na svojim web stranicama i u svojim publikacijama objavljivati sigurnosne savjete novinarima. IFJ i INSI imaju pozamašnu kolekciju informacija o pitanjima sigurnosti medijskog osoblja, koja je besplatno dostupna njihovim èlanicama (http://www.ifj.org/hrights/safety.html.
· Udruženja bi trebala na svojim web stranicama ili u drugom obliku objavititi IFJ vodiè za preživljavanje za novinare LIVE NEWS. Vodiè se može skinuti s adrese: htpp://www.ifj.org/hrights/safecontents.html.

Na kraju pozivamo sva udruženja da u aktivnosti proslave Dana slobode medija ukljuèe i skupljenje sredstava u Fond za sigurnost IFJ-a. 3. svibnja je trenutak solidarnosti sa svim novinarima koji žive u zaprepašæujuæim uvjetima straha i neimaštine. Donacije bez obzira na velièinu kljuène su za funkcuioniranje Fonda, za podmirenje najurgentnijih potreba. To je jedini fond na svijetu koji su utemeljili novinari za novinare. Od 1992. godine pomogao je stotinama kolega u kriznim situacijama. Da bismo mogli nastaviti taj posao, trebamo vašu pomoæ.

Zahvaljujemo na podršci. Zahvaljujemo i na tome što se trudite da novinarstvo postane sigurnije.

Srdaèno,
Aidan White
glavni tajnik IFJ

Profesionalna umješnost i savjest u okružju novinarstva èine jednu jedinstvenu i nedjeljivu cjelinu

Hrvatsko novinarsko društvo podsjeæa hrvatsku javnost da je slobodno novinstvo i novinarstvo preduvjet svih ostalih sloboda! Podsjeæamo na to novinare i vlasnike medija, ali i ostale aktere javnog života da sloboda u suvremenoj demokraciji i vladavini prava znaèi sukladnost slobode, odnosno da je moja sloboda ogranièena slobodom drugoga. Drugim rijeèima - neprihvatljiva su prava koja ne slijede i jednake odgovornosti. Dati drugome da govori i èuti ga, u tomu je sadržan odsudan zahtjev koji se postavlja svakom èovjeku, a onda osobito profesionalnom novinaru i uredniku. Kultura dijaloga, naime, samo je jednom od inaèicom nacionalne i univerzalne kulture i u tom je pogledu uloga slobodnih medija više nego dragocjena. Podsjeæamo da profesionalna umješnost i profesionalna savjest, u okružju novinarstva, više no u veæini inih profesija, èine jednu jedinstvenu i nedjeljivu cjelinu. Samo pod tim i takvim kondicijama, moguæe je govoriti o novinarstvu kao tzv. èetvrtoj vlasti.
 Ipak, senzacionalizam, dezinformacije, ksenofobija, kršenje nacionalnih, vjerskih, seksualnih i inih ljudskih prava, presezanje u podruèje privatnog i intimnog života nemoænih i najmlaðih èlanova društva, pojave su, koje manje no u nekim prošlim vremenima, ali ipak još imaju razarajuæi uèinak na savjest osoba i društveni život. Naravno, za takvo stanje, na koje nas upozoravaju brojni graðani, novinari, predstavnici civilnih udruga, te najviši državni dužnosnici i saborski zastupnici, nisu odgovorni samo novinari i vlasnici medija nego i ostali akteri javnog života. Izostanak javne kontrole i samokontrole nije jamstvom slobode medija, nego naèinom na koji se javna glasila pretvaraju u javno zastrašivanje! Mi novinari, pozvani smo više no ostali, držati se jasnih pravila zapisanih, meðu ostalim, i u Kodeksu èasti HND-a, a ona jamèe pluralizam, sudioništvo i poštivanje publike.
 Na Svjetski dan slobode medija sjetimo se i brojnih novinarskih žrtava u tek završenom ratu u Iraku, a koje nas, pak podsjeæaju na hrvatske novinare što su obavljajuæi svoj svakodnevni posao pali u Domovinskom ratu.

SEEMO PROTEST SERBIA - 24 APRIL 2003

Mr. Zoran Zivkovic

Prime Minister of Serbia

Belgrade

By Fax: + 381 11 361 76 09

Ms. Natasa Micic

President of the Parliament

Vienna, 24 April 2003

Your Excellency,

The Vienna-based South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO), a network of editors, media executives and leading journalists in South East Europe and an affiliate of the International Press Institute (IPI), is deeply concerned about press freedom developments in Serbia, including irregularities in the appointment of two members of the Broadcast Agency Council; the verbal attacks against Gordana Susa, a journalist for the TV news programme "VIN"; the threats against Vukasin Obradovic, editor-in-chief of Novine Vranjske; and the government's prevention of the privatisation of Radio B92.

According to our sources, the appointment on 11 April of two Serbian Broadcast Agency Council members, based on nominations made by the Serbian Government and National Assembly, was in breach of the procedures defined in Article 24 (12) of the Broadcast Act. This Article provides that the Parliament must publish at least 30 days in advance of the day of selection of Council members all valid lists of nominees as proposed by competent bodies, complete with biographical data of the nominees. Whereas biographies of all other selected nominees were published in advance, the nomination of Nenad Cekic was published only on 8 April, i.e., only three days ahead of his election, while the nomination of Vladimir Cvetkovic was announced only on 11 April, the day of the selection of the Council members.

According to information before SEEMO, Gordana Susa, editor-in-chief of the political TV programme "VIN", received a telephone call from senior governmental official Vladimir "Beba" Popovic after her programme, aired on 18 April by TV B92 and the ANEM Network, featured an interview with the Serbian deputy prime minister Nebojsa Covic. Popovic verbally insulted and threatened the journalist for asking the deputy prime minister about Popovic's status at the Serbian government Communications Bureau and his presence at briefings for media editors and journalists organised regularly by the government during the state of emergency. Susa's questions were based on growing public speculation about the official position of Popovic, who had reportedly left his post as the government's Communications Bureau chief but turned up at the briefings for media editors in the aftermath of the prime minister Zoran Djindjic's assassination and the introduction of the state of emergency. According to information received by SEEMO via its help-line for journalists in South East Europe, this was not the first incident involving Popovic.

Furthermore, SEEMO is informed that on the night of 19 April, unknown perpetrators damaged the car of Vukasin Obradovic, editor-in-chief of Novine Vranjske. The incident took place in the night of the announcement that public prosecutors planned to bring charges against Serbian Orthodox Bishop Pahomije. At the beginning of January, Novine vranjske started publishing a series of articles about five children from Vranje, who accused Bishop Pahomije of sexual abuse and brought criminal charges against him. On 20 April, a person who claimed to be a member of the organisation "Black Hand" threatened two of the witnesses in this case. Already at the beginning of March, Obradovic and his colleague, Goran Antic, received death threats in a letter signed by "Srpski oslobodilacki otpor" (Serbian Liberation Resistance) and "Srpski oslobodilacki front" (Serbian Liberation Front).

Finally, SEEMO is concerned about the fact that the privatisation auction of part of the Belgrade-based Radio B 92, planned for 7 April, was stopped by the government agency responsible for privatisation. Technical reasons were cited for this action, but no details for a new auction date have been published. In the view of SEEMO, the stoppage of the privatisation procedures makes it difficult for B92 to continue its day-to-day work as the leading independent radio station in Serbia.

SEEMO urges Your Excellency to do everything in your power to ensure that journalists in Serbia are allowed to carry out their profession without fear of harassment or intimidation, and to examine all illegal procedures that were used against the media during the state of emergency.

Furthermore, we urge the Government and the Parliament of Serbia to check all accusations regarding Vladimir Popovic since he started his work for the government. We also ask you to dismiss the illegally elected Broadcast Agency Council members and to repeat the nomination procedure for these two posts.

Finally, we expect the government to ask Parliament to make changes in the Public Information Act in order to block all provisions of the Act that were not accepted by the working group for preparation of media laws. An example for this is the Article of the Act allowing the state to found news agencies.

We thank you for your attention.

Yours sincerely,

Oliver Vujovic

SEEMO Secretary General

Authors' Rights Must be Protected To Defend Quality Media Say Journalists on

World Copyright Day

Better quality in media depends on higher protection for authors' rights says the International Federation of Journalists today in a statement to mark UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day on April 23rd.

"A key element in any strategy to maintain high standards of media content is to preserve and enhance the economic and moral intellectual property rights of authors" according to the IFJ, which says converging technologies are changing the nature of journalism and the conditions in which journalists work.

IFJ Warns Serbia On "Damage to Integrity of Broadcasting Law" In Dispute

Over Appointments

The International Federation of Journalists today backed journalists groups in Serbia protesting over "irregularities" in the National Assembly appointment of people to Council of the Broadcast Agency.

"For months journalists have been calling on the Serbian government to implement the Broadcasting Act, but now when they have decided to act it appears the rules are being broken," said Aidan White, IFJ General Secretary. "If the rules are not followed it will do damage to the integrity of the country's broadcasting law and will undermine the whole process of reforming the broadcasting system."

Velebitska degenija, nagrada je Hrvatskog novinarskog društva - Zbora novinara za okoliš i èlana HEP grupe agencije APO d.o.o., usluge u zaštiti okoliša. Utemeljena je 1999. godine kako bi se valorizirali i nagradili novinarski radovi na temu zaštite prirode i zaštite okoliša u tisku, na radiju i televiziji.
Dodjeljuje se uz Dan planeta Zemlje 22. travnja . Nagrada se sastoji od skulpturne plakete, rad kipara Stjepana Divkoviæa, diplome i novèanog dijela. Na prijedlog HND - ZNO-a  nagrada je dobila ime po Velebitskoj degeniji, endemiènoj biljci žutih cvjetova, koja raste samo na Velebitu.

Ovogodišnja sveèana dodjela je u èetvrtak, 17 travnja u 12 sati u Velikoj dvorani Novinarskog doma, Perkovèeva 2/ 1 u Zagrebu. Oèekujemo da æe mediji zabilježiti taj znaèajni dogaðaj za našu profesiju.

Uloga novinara u zaštiti okoliša iznimno je znaèajna, jer nema cjelovite zaštite, bez sudjelovanja javnosti i suradnje s ljudima koji stvaraju vijesti, prenose ih i tako utjeèu na javno mišljenje. Naime, nema razvitka bez utjecaja na okoliš, stoga je uloga novinara presudna u izbjegavanju senzacionalistièkog pristupa temama ili, što je gore, nepoznavanja onoga o èemu se piše ili govori.
Koliko god bili znaèajni struènjaci i znanstvenici ne mogu zamijeniti novinare u prenošenju toènih, istinskih informacija o problemima okoliša u javnosti.
To su bili razlozi koji su naveli APO d.o.o. usluge u zaštiti okoliša da podrže ustanovljavanje novinarske nagrade, a u Zboru novinara za okoliš i njegovoj prvoj predsjednici Lidiji Firšt našli su pravog sugovornika.
Nagrade se dodjeljuju na prijedlog povjerenstva u kome su predstavnici HND-ZNO-a, APO-a, Ministarstva zaštite okoliša i jedan ugledni znanstvenik.

Èlanovi povjerenstva za 2003. godinu su:
Dr. Paula Durbešiæ, predsjednica
Silva Celebrini Tevèiæ, zamjenica predsjednice
Tanja Devèiæ, èlan
Mario Bošnjak, èlan
Koraljka Eteroviæ, èlan
 i Mirjana Èerškov Klika, èlan

Za Zbor novinara za zaštitu okoliša
Tanja Devèiæ, predsjednica Zbora
