Keeping Baliís Press Neutral

(3/3/2013)

The rising political temperatures in Bali have prompted the Bali Media Association (AMB) to issue a call for all members of the local media in Bali to safeguard their neutrality in reporting on the race for governor and deputy governor.

Quoted by Kompas.com, Wisnu Wardana, the chairman of AMB said: “We must give the facts, we must report all aspects of the race. A press that is unbalanced is not a healthy press.”

Wisnu expressed his concern toward a particular member of Bali’s mass media perceived to be very unbalanced in their reporting and siding only with one candidate. The AMB has written an open letter to the Press Council, warning that if the situation is allowed to continue it will blemish the journalistic code and the reputation of the press.

Wisnu hopes the Press Council will follow up the letter sent by the AMB and make an objective review of the case.

To assist in safeguarding objectivity among Bali’s press, the AMB held a discussion in Bali  on Thursday, February 28, 2013 with the theme “The Role of an Objective Press in the Race for Bali’s Governor.”

Media figures, academic and government officials were invited to attend that forum.
