To be honest ..their media reporting still lack profesionalism ...a friend of mine from states was branded a conman ....working in the Bereina district ..seeking funds for a agriculture project there...how could the journalist asked for a pay rise when his or her reporting lacks careful check on the allegation on ma friend as a conman....???
at least the journalist could have made a research on ma friend n let alone allow an add to contact the paper to show his side of the story..furthermore contact imigration and american embassy if such a person exist ....my friend ended up with the papers editor and ppl in charge there and have to set records straight ...
1. Carry out a through research and investigation before all reporting are made public
2. Your media coverage could have slam a major agricultural development investment in PNG and for the Bereina people....
3. If you have done ur homework ...you would have found out hes a lawyer by profession and is engaged in PNG by the american embassy ..
4....and finally ...its appropriate & still fair on jornalists here in PNG to be still in the same band ....promotion or an improvement to a higher Band is required with quality research n reporting ...then you will have a worthy cause to cry for ...
