Journalistic Ethics In Bolivia

I always believe, irrevocably, that one of the main functions of a journalist is to provide the news company with the ability to provide full, accurate, true, complete and free from any personal subjectivity, since everyone who practices journalism, so I understand it, must inevitably be a priority for public welfare personnel, respecting the right to be properly informed inherent in each and every one of the inhabitants of a country. The journalist regardless of their cultural heritage or ethnic origin should establish and support the development of its work, the time to provide the news, on the accuracy and objectivity, leaving aside any personal passion, so as to provide this service to society in a balanced manner, concise, clear, credible and reliable.

It is true that journalism is not only limited means to communicate news items, political, social, sporting, economic, scientific, cultural, etc. but in a broad sense, and for the benefit of all citizens, including or chronic, criticism, reviews, interviews, human interest news, investigative journalism, opinion, analysis, and more. Sadly, in Bolivia a large number of media workers forget there is a time and place for everything and only engage in the above mix, and since the country is experiencing today in the crucial moments that will decide their future through elections general out on the “journalists” who forget their real responsibility to society to the extent that some openly support a political party and others strongly criticize both sides overturning the information and making accusations and “analysis” omitting the expectation of negligible a people means that their work towards the whole society and not just a group or groups.
