European Federation of Journalists supports the Register of Professional Online Media


SKOPJE, 20.12.2019 – The European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) welcomed the registry on self-regulation of online media in North Macedonia, which was initiated by the Association of Journalists of Macedonia (AJM) and the Council of Media Ethics in Macedonia (CMEM).

“We believe that journalists’ organisations should promote for the public benefit high ethical standards in journalism, based on five principles: truth and accuracy, independence, fairness and honesty, humanity, and accountability,” said EFJ General Secretary Ricardo Gutiérrez. “That is why the EFJ supports this professional initiative aiming to strengthen media self-regulation in North Macedonia.”

We remind that more than 70 online media have managed to enter the Registry in the first phase, and the web site will have details for all members of the Registry starting in January 1st next year.
