The AEJ Bulgarian section has marked World Press Freedom Day 2015 with a campaign for better reporting and against the crude sensationalism which now mars the output of much of the media in Bulgaria.
‘Let Journalism thrive!’ AEJ Bulgaria launches campaign for better reporting and against crude sensationalism
AEJ-Bulgaria calls on all media workers to sign a petition for journalists to renew their commitment to professional ethics. The petition is also open to all the Bulgarian citizens who want to put a stop to sensationalism and the relentless emphasis on human tragedies, disasters and trivia.
The Bulgarian media must earn the respect of the public by raising the standard and quality of journalism and maintaining strong independence in the face of severe political and corporate pressures on the country’s journalists.
