Triển khai “ISO báo chí” và giao lưu “Báo chí điều tra”


[Hanoi, November 23rd, 2015] The Center for Media in Educating Community (MEC), Ho Chi Minh City Law Newspaper, Vietnam Digital Television Corporation (VTC), Inspectorate Newspaper, and Nghe An Labour Newspaper co-organized a meeting to introduce “Media ISO” standards and to launch the research “Investigative Journalism” and to hold an opinion exchange with the same name among almost 80 concerned journalists, reporters, and representatives from public offices and social organizations.

The process of research and establishing “Media ISO” standard has involved 52 media agencies, 300 journalists, reporters, media leaders and readers and many other individuals and organizations. In particular, the researchers have received many important results from press projects in the period 2012 – 2015 funded by the U.K Government and piloted in several press agencies before finalizing and announcing.

According to the findings, only half of the media agencies in Vietnam have their own procedures to receive and deal with citizens’ opinions. However, the procedures are quite simple, even poor, with just basic steps, including: Receiving - Transferring - Processing - Supervising - Responding to Public’s opinions. Not many media agencies apply the procedures established by public offices that are more capable of keeping track of and promoting state responsiveness, consisting of: Pushing - Following up - Analysing.

Notably, many press agencies fail to reply to citizens’ opinions within 30 days as stipulated by the press law.

Apart from that, the research also points out the fact that many journalists and reporters have limited capacity in investigative journalism while their organizations lack effective tools in ensuring journalistic ethics, and this reduces the strength of investigative journalism.

To help resolve these problems, the MEC expert panel of 20 reputable journalists and experts has introduced the “media ISO”, including an eight-step procedures and a toolkit of “Receiving - Transferring - Processing - Supervising - Responding to Public’s opinions through the press”.

The British Ambassador to Vietnam Giles Lever expressed confidence that the toolkit will help press agencies to better reflect the issues that their readers interested in as well as issues affecting them directly.

MEC also organized a seminar, “Investigative Journalism: The Law and Ethics”, as part of the meeting. The seminar attracted many reputable journalists and experts, who critically analysed recent wrongdoings of the press, such as recklessness, violation of privacy rights, revealing state secret, being manipulated by interest groups, etc., in an attempt to fully resolve these problems.

The Investigative Journalism Club under Academy of Journalism and Communications, brought a new insight into investigative journalism training with their passion and youthfulness. A group of journalists from the Ho Chi Minh City Law Newspaper also demonstrated their excellent journalistic skills through a high comedy.

In addition to the media agencies that have participated in testing and applying the “media ISO”, MEC also provides the standards to local associations of journalists and other media agencies. At the same time, MEC is planning to develop training courses on the procedures and toolkit that they created.

The program has been organized in the context of the National Assembly is considering The Press Law and The Law to Access to Information which are expected to be passed in March 2016 and the eve of International Anti-Corruption Day on December 2nd, 2015.

 

Media ISO” Standard


According to the international definition, ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) is a basic quality management system which can be used in every profession with every scope all over the world. Achieving ISO certification is the objective proof that agencies, organisations did effectively implement the quality management system and satisfy all requirements of the standard in use.


Meanwhile, research results show that most editorial offices in Viet Nam are short of a close management system to ensure the quality of press products.


Therefore, the research team has proposed a quality management system to editorial offices called “media ISO”, especially focusing on two matters: (i) Press ethics and (ii) The responsibility to impulse Governmental agency to execute the responsibility of explaination people’s opinion through press.


The “media ISO” Standard includes two basic components which are Process and Tools of  “Receiving - Transferring - Processing - Supervising - Responding to Public’s opinions through the press”.
