Ensuring Quality Journalism

March 25, 2023 07:30 am

In recent years, the rise of online media has brought about a new era in the field of journalism. With the proliferation of online portals, the way we consume news and information has drastically changed. However, as Press Council Nepal Chairman Balkrishna Basnet has pointed out, the growth in the number of online media outlets has not always been accompanied by a corresponding increase in quality or credibility. This presents a significant challenge for the media industry in Nepal, as trust is the foundation upon which journalism rests. It is a matter of serious concern as the media in general in Nepal has already come under serious public scrutiny over professionalism and ethical standards.
