Angola: Media Council warned about criterion on objectivity

Regulation & Policy

The National Council of Social Communication (CNCS) calls the attention of social communication organs to work with objectivity, exemption and strictness enshrined in the press law and the structuring principle of a democratic society.

This call of attention is part of a decision unveiled on Thursday in Luanda, in which CNCS expresses its concern mainly due to the improper language used in various youth programmes.

The deliberation focuses its concern mainly on the channel 2 of the Angolan Public Television (TPA) that has not been accomplishing the role of educating the future generation.

According to the document, TPA and Zimbo TVs are not obeying the contradictory principle, by not providing air time to any of the participants of the March 10, 2012 protests, thereby hindering the spectators from getting in touch with the news broadcasted.
