Last week, the NGF hosted a 2-Day training for Journalists on Peace and Conflict Sensitive Reporting with Premium Times.
-A few nuggets from the training include understanding the different types of conflict and how journalists must manage the relationship with the government and the news that is being reported.
-The role of media and the humanitarian crisis: Non-sensitive reporting is unprofessional reporting and can lead to negative and tragic outcomes.
-Hate Speech and Fake News: We should look at ethnicity when reporting the news because highlighting some groups can incite violence and disharmony.
-Multimedia Verification: You must conduct fact-checking to make sure there is no doubt about the story.
You should also verify content to check whether it’s been manipulated.
