Freedom of the press: Italy 41st in the world ranking

Reporters sans frontières  sans frontières has drawn up the world report for 2020 which illustrates the il ranking of 180 countries for press freedom.

Among the top ten we find above all the states of Europe with a podium all dedicated to the North:

In first place is Norway and in eleventh place, one step outside the top ten is Germany:

Italy is improving by gaining points compared to previous years, with a remarkable and positive gap from 2015-2016, one of the most inglorious years for Italy.

However, it seems clear that press freedom in Italy deserves to be described as a point on which to beat again, probably now more than ever, considering the decisive decade for the journalism sector and all its professionals and considering Italy’s 41st place in the world ranking for press freedom.

We report the whole text from the article of rsf.org as regards Italy and its internal situation.

Still under protection
About 20 Italian journalists are currently receiving round-the-clock police protection because of serious threats or murder attempts by the mafia. The level of violence against reporters keeps on growing, especially in Rome and the surrounding region, and in the south. In Campania, the editor of Campanianotize.com narrowly escaped a murder attempt in November 2019 by a local mafia family in reprisal for his newspaper’s investigative reporting. In Rome, reporters were verbally and physically attacked in the course of their work by members of neo-fascist groups and the Five Star Movement (M5S), which is part of the coalition government. On the whole, Italian politicians are less virulent towards journalists than in the past, but journalism risks being undermined by certain recent government decisions, such as a possible reduction in state subsidies for the media.

Giulietto Chiesa has left us

We communicate with great dismay and pain at the sudden departure of one of the pillars of free information, dear Giulietto Chiesa.

Professional journalist, politician, activist, former MEP, director of PANDORATV.IT as well as our official partner and one of the founders of this brilliant project called WREP..

Through the words of cartoonist Vauro we could not give a better image of this man, even before this journalist:

WREP will always remember you as one of the most prolific and committed journalists on the free information front, with a detached and absolutely alternative vision.

Eyes that wept in the face of horror and shone in the face of truth.

Thank you Giulietto for everything you have done.

Photojournalism

Photojournalism is the form of journalism that employs images to tell a story. Usually refers only to still images, but more and more the term also refers to the video used in television journalism, the so-called Videogame. Photojournalism distinguishes itself from other branches of photography, such as documentary photography, social documentary photography, street photography or celebrity photography, respecting a rigid ethical framework that requires that the reporter be always honest and impartial in telling the story in strictly journalistic terms. Photojournalists create images that contribute to information, so photojournalists need to be well informed about the events they are taking.

Timeliness, objectivity and narration are the three main principles of the Photo and Video Journalist. Timeliness as Images have meaning in the context of a recently published event. Objectivity, given the nature implied by the images that must be a correct and accurate representation of the events that are portrayed, both in content and tone. Narration because the images are combined with other elements of the story that makes the facts of a news easier to access to the public.

As a writer, a photojournalist is a reporter, but he or she must often make decisions instantly and carry photographic equipment, often while exposed to significant obstacles (e.g., physical danger, weather, crowds, physical access).

The photojournalist ethics

All photojournalists and videogionalists must strive with their own example and their area of ​​influence in maintaining high standards of ethical conduct, keeping themselves free from mercenary considerations of any kind. Every photojournalist and video reporter has the responsibility, at all times, to look for images that report reality in a truthful, honest and objective way. Corporate promotion in its many forms is essential, but false statements of any kind are not worthy of a professional photojournalist and any such practice must be openly condemned.
It is our duty of every photo and video to encourage and assist all colleagues, so that the quality of photojournalism can be constantly raised to ever higher standards.
It is the duty and goal of every photojournalist to work to preserve all the rights of press freedom recognized by democratic laws and work to protect and expand the freedom of access to all sources of news and visual information.

Laws regarding photography can vary significantly from nation to nation. The legal situation is further complicated when one considers that photojournalism made in one country will often be published in many other countries.

Citizen Journalism

The concept of citizen journalism is based on citizens “who play an active role in the process of collecting, communicating, analyzing and disseminating news and information”.
