Human Rights Comment : Ethical journalism: self-regulation protects the independence of media

Human Rights Comment : Ethical journalism: self-regulation protects the independence of media | Doing Journalism | Scoop.it

"The media play an enormously important role in the protection of human rights. They expose human rights violations and offer an arena for different voices to be heard in public discourse. However, the power of the media can also be misused to the extent that the very functioning of democracy is threatened."

BBC Radio 1 breakfast show slumps to its smallest audience on record

BBC Radio 1 breakfast show slumps to its smallest audience on record | Doing Journalism | Scoop.it

Nick Grimshaw’s show attracts 5.3 million listeners a week but young people ‘don’t consume as much radio as they used to’

Gary Stevens's insight:
According to the Guardian: "The BBC said that Radio 1’s YouTube and Vevo channels now receive an average of 1.6m views a day while its iPlayer channel receives 1.1m views a month. However, the traditional audience for the breakfast show has fallen from 5.7 million in the same three-month period last year and from around 7 million when Grimshaw started presenting it in 2012."

Broadcaster fears being ‘overtaken by competitors’ as technology firms increasingly dominate on-demand viewing
Gary Stevens's insight:
“This generation of children embody the digital transformation,” said the BBC. “They are the audience group that are changing fastest. Although TV continues to be the main platform for children’s viewing, what they consider to be ‘TV’ and how they access this is rapidly evolving.” This and other data, including increased efforts to tackle fake news, are reported in the BBC's Annual Plan 2018-19: http://www.bbc.co.uk/aboutthebbc/insidethebbc/howwework/reports/annual_plan_2018.

Gary Stevens's insight:
