GuideStar UK, which is independent of the US GuideStar, will achieve this objective, but launches in 2005, 11 years after the pioneering launch of the idea in the USA.center_img GuideStar celebrates 10th anniversary Tagged with: Digital Finance Giving/Philanthropy About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

RSF to Taiwanese President: “Taiwan urgently needs media reform to tackle disinformation”

first_imgNews April 29, 2020 Find out more News As Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen prepares to enter her second 4-year term in office on May 20th, 2020, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) in an opinion article published in several media reiterated its call for reforms to guarantee editorial independence and tackle conflicts of interest in the media outlets and insisted on the expansion of ethical journalism practices to tackle disinformation.“Ethical journalism is the only sustainable way for democracy to develop a natural immunity against disinformation by filtering and debunking “fake news” before it becomes viral and by providing trustworthy content as an alternative,” said Christophe Deloire, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) Secretary-general. “When journalists are given sufficient time and resources to adhere to the highest ethical standards and when editorial departments have the ability to reject commercial and political pressure, public trust in the media will naturally improve and manipulated content will fall on deaf ears.”Last December, amid concerns in Taiwan about possible disinformation attacks aimed at influencing the presidential elections, RSF called on the candidates and political parties engage in a media reform to strengthen journalism.In 2017, President Tsai received Secretary-general Deloire at the Presidential Office Building in Taipei and expressed her commitment to press freedom. Taiwan, a liberal democracy that is the world’s 21st largest economy, is the victim of growing interference in its media from the People’s Republic of China, who aggressively claims its sovereignty on the island.Taiwan is currently ranked 43rd out of 180 in the 2020 RSF World Press Freedom Index.The letter was published in the following media:Liberty Times (in Chinese)Commonwealth (in Chinese)Taipei Times (in English)Commonwealth (in English) Help by sharing this information Coronavirus: WHO urged to lift ban on Taiwanese reporters RSF_en News Organisation June 29, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Taiwan TaiwanAsia – Pacific Protecting journalistsMedia independence Conflicts of interestCorruptionEconomic pressure center_img As Taiwanese president Tsai Ing-wen enters her second term, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) reiterates its call for reforms to guarantee editorial independence and tackle conflicts of interest in the media as the only sustainable means to protect democracy against disinformation.

Since then intelligence agents have been trying to obtain confessions and information about all those who sent me messages online, my family and my professional contacts,” he said.Hedayat was arrested when he returned from Germany on 16 January 2004 on the orders of the revolutionary court of Tabriz in the north-west. He was earlier arrested on 16 June 2003, at Tabriz University, while covering student demonstrations. Accused of “inciting students to rebellion”, he was held for more than 20 days in solitary confinement. After his release on 14 July, he wrote to President Khatami condemning his prison conditions and torture inflicted by the security forces.Mostafa Sabti, publisher of the weekly Gorgan-e emrouz, was arrested on 19 March on the orders of the first section of the Gorgan court in the north of Iran. He was sentenced to three months in prison and four months suspended for publishing an open letter from residents of a district of Gorgan protesting against the taking over of a park.

The new year now beginning, under the Iranian calendar, gave no hope of a better future for press freedom in Iran, where 12 journalists were now in jail,” the organisation said.The trial of Ensafali Hedayat was postponed to 14 April at the request of his lawyers who had not been able to see the file. One of them said Hedayat was apparently charged with “propaganda against the regime and insulting the Guide”, “incitement to rebellion” and “attending counter-revolutionary meetings abroad”.
