WEDNESDAY, 21 JANUARY
– Every news must be reported with integrity to ensure that the credibility of the news is safeguarded.
This was said by the Vice-Chancellor of Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS), Professor Datuk Dr. Mohd Harun Abdullah when opening the programme ‘Zamalah Wartawan Muda 1Malaysia’, recently.
He further stressed that the value of honesty should also be made into a strong foundation when reporting certain news.
“The field of journalism is a profession that can change the perception and mindset of the people,” he said.
He added that it was the responsibility of journalists to provide the truth over an issue or incident so that the public would get a clear and true picture.
A total of 23 journalists from 14 media organisations from across the country participated in the programme organised by the Malaysian Press Institute (MPI) in collaboration with the Department of Information Sabah. – SS (fl)
