Czech Republic: The Media and Us

 

By UPF Czech Republic

True Father has invested much work in media conferences to educate the journalists about their ethical responsibility. Building on this foundation, UPF Czech Republic organized a public lecture on media in the present today under the title “The Media and Us.”

The event took place in the hall of the Czech Association of Scientific and Technical Societies in the old town of Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic on the 24th January 2017.

The presentation attracted much interest; among the guests were politicians and journalists. The presentation by an experienced journalist (Barbara Grabner) explained how the media selects the news and shapes public opinion. For example – an opinion which is favored by the journalists appears stronger than in reality it is!

Afterwards there was a lively discussion. Among the debaters was also the chairman of the Czech Television Council, which supervises the television and radio broadcasting in the Czech Republic. This lecture launched a media project in our country.
