“MONITORING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE BROADCASTING CODE’S PROVISIONS”

Press Communique 

 During the Days of the Press Freedom in Moldova, 10 NGOs dealing with media and human rights, under the aegis of the APEL Electronic Press Association, launch the first report in 2008 on monitoring the application of the provisions of the Broadcasting Code.

It was for the first time that the news and current affairs program monitors considered the programs of the Regional Public Broadcasting Institution (RPBI) the company "Teleradio-Gagauzia". At the same time, the monitors have considered the news and current affairs programs broadcasted by Radio Moldova and Moldova 1 TV of the National Public Broadcasting Institution (NPBI) the company "Teleradio-Moldova".  

If the results of selective monitoring of the news programs of Teleradio-Gagauzia are but a finding of the first monitoring, then in the case of the national broadcaster, the found indices already offer possibilities for comparison, analysis, conclusions in range with the results of the previous monitoring sessions.

The results of monitoring the news and current affairs programs of Teleradio-Moldova from 15 to 21 of April 2008 tell of the fact that the national public broadcaster keeps on the tendency to align to professional standards, more obvious in the case of the TV station, although a series of indices point out they continue the obsolete practice of editing and structuring the news programs, of mirroring events preponderantly through the official viewpoint, of producing laudatory-triumphalist style TV and radio reports, while the ratio of reports mirroring topics of major interest for the wide public goes on being insignificant. 

Supervising the mode in which the provisions of the broadcasting law are implemented and respected is illustrated through two case studies. The first study refers to the Broadcasting Council observing the national and international norms in the case of the public notification concerning the language of the program "Poveşti cu măşti” (Tales with Masks), aired by NIT tv station. The second case study envisages the way in which the Regulation on managing the Broadcasters Supporting Fund, endorsed by the BCC, matches the spirit of the regulations in the national broadcasting sector and represents the broadcasters’ interests.
