“All beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights”
Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 1
‘Journalism ethics demand that practitioners are conscious of the overriding need to be free from the shackles of biases, relying only on utmost integrity in the search for and reporting of the truth; fairly, honestly and accurately as possible. We recognise this as only possible when reporters develop positive attitudes towards inclusivity and sensitivity to minority rights issues, consistent with the media’s role of serving the public with integrity while being guided by accepted principles and standards of the profession to bring about a conducive and progressive atmosphere that supports accurate story telling that frames and constructs minority narratives in ways that ensures that all individuals and communities have the dignity they deserve irrespective of their social status, gender or sexual orientation.’
