ArmTV’s news report on June 24 had a reference to the Constitutional Court, in particular, that there was a change in CC website and the word “members” was replaced by “judges”.
The journalist trying to get an answer to the question, “how the members became judges”, talked to the former judge Pargev Ohanyan, who was critical of the lawmakers. There was no opposite viewpoint, that is the balance of the reportage was broken, moreover, the journalist Anush Martirosyan made assessments. In her speech she specifically mentiones that Constitutional Court judge Vahe Grigoryan during his inauguration at the NA justified the reason why he moves to the CC with the president’s powers.
“Media Advocate” Initiative urges to preserve journalistic ethics, refrain from unbalanced comments and assessments.
