“Media Advocate” urges Tsarukyan not to label journalists

Yesterday’s question and answer session between Prosperous Armenia Party leader Gagik Tsarukyan and a journalist became a reason of hot discussions.
When responding to journalist’s question, Gagik Tsarukyan asks: “Girl, did you get an education? I want to know where you have graduated from.” Journalist says she is a YSU graduate, after which Tsarukyan responds: “What has YSU graduate to do with journalism?” The journalist mentions that she graduated from the Faculty of Journalism. Gagik Tsarukyan argues the journalist’s professional qualities and harshly responds.
“Media Advocate” initiative urges Gagik Tsarukyan to avoid labeling journalists when responding to them.
