 Акценти и позиции

По повод декларацията на журналистите от предаването „Денят започва с култура” на БНТ, УС на СБЖ заявява категоричната си позиция, че свободата на словото и на журналистите в обществената телевизия трябва да бъдат гарантирани при всички обстоятелства. Ненамесата в работата на журналистите е неотменима част от професионалните и етичните стандарти и тази ценност, извоювана през годините, трябва да бъде отстоявана ежедневно.

СБЖ винаги ще се противопоставя на превръщането на журналистите в заложници или оръдия на битките между олигарси, или каквито и да е други противостоящи си лагери, и ще продължи да настоява свободата на словото и журналистическите права да бъдат законово защитени - цел, заложена и в законодателните инициативи, които отдавна вече са внесени от нас в Народното събрание и чието гласуване става все по-неотложна необходимост.

Форумът, организиран от едната от враждуващите медийни групировки, умело се опита да подмени големия проблем за българското общество - свободата на журналистите - със свободата на медиите.

Все нещо пречи на държавните ни мъже, жени, а понякога и деца, да влязат в релсите на общественото изискване за по-добър живот. Преди време намираха оправдание в сушата, кишата и Гришата (тогавашен Бойко Борисов).
