Appell għal prudenza fir-rappurtaġġi - Ġunju 2018

Appell​ mill-Kummissarju għas-Saħħa Mental għal prudenza fir-rappurtaggi. 

Il-Kummissarju tas-Saħħa Mentali jinnota ili l-appell tiegħu għal sens ċiviku u etiku fir-rappurtaġġi fil-media lokali qed jasal u qed jiġi implimentat b’responsabilita’ minn diversi edituri, ġurnalisti u mediahouses.

Il-Kummissarju jinnota wkoll ċerti rappurtaġġi f’dawn l-aħħar ġimgħat speċjalment f’media elettronika, li permezz ta’ kitba, referenza b’messaġġi sottili u ovvji u użu ta’ ritratti u immaġni setgħu ħallew impatt negattiv fuq l-udjenza bl-aktar mod wiesa’. Rappurtaġġ mingħajr sens ċivili u etiku jħalli wkoll impatt negattiv fuq il-persuni li għalihom issir referenza b’mod dirett jew indirett fir-rappurtaġġ. Infakkru wkoll li persuni li għaddejjin minn diffikultajiet għandhom qraba u ħbieb jistgħu iweġġgħu huma wkoll minħabba rappurtaġġ irresponsabbli.

Hu

wa tajjeb li l-media twassal il-messaġġ lis-soċjeta’ bl-aktar mod mgħaġġel u ħieles. Huwa tajjeb li ċ-ċittadini jaqsmu il-ħsibijiet tagħhom b’użu għaqli tal-media soċjali. L-appell għal darb’oħra huwa li, wieħed għandu jgħodd sal-100 u jekk hemm bżonn sal-1000 qabel ma jagħfas il-buttini ‘publish’, ‘like’ jew ‘share’.

Nitt

ama li kumpaniji tal-media u individwi jkomplu jirriflettu fuq dan il-messaġġ u jneħħu artikli u kull materjal li jista’ b’xi mod iħalli impatt negattiv speċjalment b’mod mentali u psikoloġiku. Ma’ dan l-appell norbot ukoll li kulħadd irid jerfa’ r-responsabbilta’ ta’ għemilu u ħadd ma hu meħlus billi jgħid li hu kien qed jagħmel xogħlu jew li qed jeżerċita d-dritt ta’ ċittadin liberu. Jekk insikktu l-kuxjenza nispiċċaw mingħajr valuri ċiviċi u etiċi.​
