 Journalism is no easy task at the best of times
• there are moments when journalists and media are confronted by a story so big that it tests their notion of Professionalism to the limit (eg. Horror of the Sept 11, 2011)
• coverage of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre and the aftermath was restrained.

 Debating on how journalists work and the media’s capacity to provide accurate, reliable and timely information on human rights issues:
• It is not seeking to put journalists on trial, or to make excuses for incompetence, or
• It is to define some new communications policy,
• but it fires the opening shots in a fresh debate between journalists and human rights activists and others about the role of media in modern society.

 independent media and lashings of human interest:
• search for solutions
• sensitive and non, sensational mix of journalism
• shows full of expert analysis and passionate debate

2 nd Main & supporting ideas
 how to protect their independence : unifying political ideology
• the notion that democratic pluralism
• respect for human rights
• The imperatives[2] of journalism (truth, independence and awareness of the impact of words and images on society

 contribute to building public confidence:

• exposing wrongdoing and corruption,
• explaining the impact of events on the world in which we live.
