Stereotyped reporting on children dominates the Georgian media, UNICEF report says
TBILISI, Georgia - 20 February, 2009
A UNICEF commissioned research revealed that Georgian media lacks overall professional standards, which should be used by journalists and media managers while reporting on children. A research on protecting media ethics and journalistic professional standards while reporting on children called "Ethical reporting on children in Georgia - Situation Analysis" was presented at the media forum attended by leading journalists and news producers of Georgia on 20 February. The main idea of the media forum was to generate a discussion on the topic and to identify next steps on how to further enhance child-friendly reporting in Georgia.
