MASI Thanks Government for organising a weekly press conference
The Media Association of Solomon Islands (MASI) wishes to thank the government for the initiative of a weekly press conference.
MASI President, Georgina Kekea says this initiative is timely as the media struggle in its role to curb the spread of misinformation.
Forbes reported that there are 2.5 quintillion bytes of data created each day. That is a lot of information, Ms. Kekea says.
She says the challenge in the pace of information sharing is also being felt by MASI. She says MASI thrives on responsible reporting and often encourages and reminds its members to stick to their code of conduct.
We need to be proactive now in how we do things but responsibly. Most especially at this time of pandemic and crisis, people will certainly be worried. The bridge between relevant stakeholders and the media needs to be strengthened so that timely, factual and credible information is being shared to our people, Kekea says.
