ILAM: National Assembly (NA) Chairperson Ganesh Prasad Timalsina has argued that the media should not breach others’ rights while exercising its own.
Addressing virtually participants of a training organized by the Media Action Nepal here today, NA Chair Timalsina asserted that the media also could not afford to stay away from its duties towards the country.
On the occasion, Timalsina expressed his gratitude towards Media Action Nepal for coming up with a research book on the misleading news.
Similarly, Federation of Nepali Journalists President Govinda Acharya underscored the need for the media outlets and media persons to disseminate the factual news rather than spreading the misleading information which would lead to public’s deficit of trust over the media.
Likewise, communication expert and Media Action Nepal’s President Laxman Dutt Pant shared that as many as 30 journalists from Jhapa, Ilam and Paanchthar districts were provided training on various dynamics of journalism as well as issues such as misleading news, news policies at home and abroad, rights to reserve for photos, gender-sensitive journalism among others.
The trainers included senior journalists from Nepal as well as foreign countries, according to Pant.
