“Media Advocate” initiative condemns the media’s actions which go beyond the rules of ethics.
Yesterday the news of the death of former National Security Service (NSS) head Georgi Kutoyan was disseminated in the media, some called it murder and the other a suicide. We urge you to avoid such hasty assessments.
In addition to the above-mentioned fact, there was an unprecedented cynicism by Mamul.am. The news agency created a poll asking people’s opinion on the cause of Georgi Kutoyan’s death. Such actions are unacceptable and do not fall within the bounds of morality and reason.
“Media Advocate” initiative urges the media management and editorial staff to refrain from such acts, adhere to journalistic ethics and not to subordinate moral standards to the personal interests.
