Response to Re: PNG Journalism under the spotlight

I know David ... my lecturer at UPNG and I also agree with the contents of the article ... and I also agree with Squiler .... that professionalism is lacking within PNG media. There is a high turn-over of journalists each year. Experienced journo have left for greener pastures because media companies cannot pay well. That leaves young graduates straight out of colleges with less savvy on how to approach news stories, research them, ask systematic questions and write fair, balanced reports without bias to do the job. With much theories and less practice ... they are bound to make mistakes. Editors and managements of news media organisations should be held responsible for these flaws by their employees.
