The Association of Journalists of Macedonia (AJM), the Independent Trade Union of Journalists and Media Workers (SSNM), the Macedonian Media Institute (MMI) and the Council for Media Ethics (CMEM) react to the Government’s announcement to return to the practice for payment for media campaigns with public money in the private media.

The Association of Journalists of Macedonia (AJM), the Independent Trade Union of Journalists and Media Workers (SSNM) and the Council for Media Ethics of Macedonia (CMЕM) strongly condemn the hate speech that we have witnessed in the past few days against several journalists, NGO`s and calls on the competent authorities and institutions, especially the Ministry of Interior and the Public Prosecutor’s Office to react immediately to put an end to such attacks because they directly affect the freedom of expression and freedom of the media.

The Association of Journalists (AJM), the Council for Media Ethics of Macedonia (CEMM), the Independent Trade Union of Journalists and Media Workers (SSNM) and the Macedonian Media Institute (MIM) condemn the hate speech against the team of the NGO “Metamorphosis” which is intensively spread on social networks after the publication of an article in the portal “Lider.mk” entitled ” (PHOTO) these are the people who delete content from Facebook in North Macedonia”.  

The Council of Media Ethics of Macedonia (CMEM) and the Association of Journalists of Macedonia (AJM) strongly condemn the cases of gross violation of the election silence by several online media during yesterday, which is a serious compromise of the election process.

Today, the Council of Media Ethics (CMEM) via video address on Facebook announced the awards regarding the Call for Best Journalistic Stories related to reporting on the pandemics of coronavirus (CОVID-19), the associated challenges and arising consequences.
