US First Lady Michelle Obama visited the University in Beijing, where she talked to students, and at the same time pointed out that the free flow of information makes people and the state stronger, and that it should be universal right of every individual.
Like in a real world, it is so important that the information and ideas flow freely, over the Internet and through the media as well. She mentioned that she and her husband and receive a lot of questions and criticisms of their (American) media and their citizens, and that is not always easy to keep that kind of atmosphere in the country. Although it is the basic if democratic society, and it is the most difficult to save, she would not trade it for anything in the world. Freedom of a press is the most important part in every society. Sometimes that is also the most difficult thing to conserve.
News should be the voice of people; it should affect our mind to look deeper in the heart of things. There shouldn’t be any kind of censorship. If forbid freedom of the press we have forbidden a freedom of the speech.
Since Jean Jack Rousseau the rights of the citizen have existed, they fought for our rights and the truth. They succeed to allow human to be free, the only thing that one citizen should renounce is the violence. In the news we should find all kind of truths but never offences. We should respect the right of others, we say all without offending and insulting anybody.
The other part of the news should be its accuracy; something is valuable, if it is accurate. Old news maybe isn’t valuable anymore. For example if we are talking about some law or amendment we should be aware of the fact that the law is like everything else changeable and we should always keep the step up with those changes. Information should be always fresh and brand new.
When we are talking about events, you should describe these in the best possible way so your audience can get a real picture of it. Make sure that they get all the required information about it, exact date, place or how many people participated to the event or social meeting. The more information you give them the more they will be satisfied.
Whether we are talking about the information or events and anything else that news should provide you, the most important thing is to be truthful or trustworthy. Once you lose their trust there is no coming back. So if you really want to work with news sticks to this main rule. You don’t want to be declaimed as so called tabloids. Yes they can earn money but not the trust.
Truthful information is a quality one. Finally try to respect all kinds of freedoms because you don’t want to end up like a French popular magazine “Hebdomaire” – you can’t know how much the other part is sensitive.
