2

3

4 Backgroud: The Norwegian society A small country 5 million inhabitans Small socio-economic differences Constitution from influenced by the French revolution A lot of common political values - «We are all social democrats» Media are independent of political parties.

5 The Norwegian Constitution - Article 100 There shall be freedom of expression. No person may be held liable in law for having imparted or received information, ideas or messages unless this can be justified in relation to the grounds for freedom of expression, which are the seeking of truth, the promotion of democracy and the individual s freedom to form opinions. Such legal liability shall be prescribed by law. Everyone shall be free to speak his mind frankly on the administration of the State and on any other subject whatsoever. Clearly defined limitations to this right may only be imposed when particularly weighty considerations so justify in relation to the grounds for freedom of expression. Prior censorship and other preventive measures may not be applied unless so required in order to protect children and young persons from the harmful influence of moving pictures. Censorship of letters may only be imposed in institutions. Everyone has a right of access to documents of the State and municipal administration and a right to follow the proceedings of the courts and democratically elected bodies. Limitations to this right may be prescribed by law to protect the privacy of the individual or for other weighty reasons. It is the responsibility of the authorities of the State to create conditions that facilitate open and enlightened public discourse.

6 Difficult to draw the limits Respect for privacy Rasist statements are forbidden by law Blasphemy has previously been prohibited Libels are forbidden. Some professions apply a duty of confidentiality, as doctors and health professionals.

7 Freedom of speech in journalism Secret diplomatic and military information The statement about the mass murder from the psychiatrists to the court The number of reindeer own by the individual sami.

8 Politicians tolerate much Critical focus on their business. Police seizures of drugs. Sexual intercourse with young party members.

9 The Norwegian Press Association (NP) NP is handling questions on behalf of the Norwegian media concerning: Press ethics The Norwegian Press Complaints Commission The medias access to official information The Norwegian Press Associations Commission for Freedom of information Freedom of speech and freedom of the press in general

10 The Norwegian PCC Established by The Norwegian Press Association (NP) in 1929 Objective: Supervising and furthering ethical and professional standard of the press in Norway Field of competence: All media Radio, television, daily press, the weekly press, periodical publications and online publications. Guidelines: The Code of Ethics, The Editors Code The Editors Code express The right and duties of the editors, established in 1953

11 The Norwegian PCC Seven members Appointed by The Norwegian Press Association for two years Two journalists Recommended by The Union of Norwegians Journalists Two editors Recommended by the The Norwegians Editors Association Three lay members Highly respected people in the Norwegian society

12 The Norwegian PCC A professional body The PCC is independent of the state As a professional body the PCC is a part of the Norwegian media The press members are always in majority The PCC is always led by either an editor or a journalist

13 The Norwegian PCC Who can complain? Anyone can complain The persons concerned must approve the complaint The treatment is free of charge Free, fast and fair The Secretary General may take a case to the PCC on her own initiative The person concerned must approve the complaint

14 The Norwegian PCC Adjudication alternatives The complaint is upheld The complaint is dismissed Reprimand

15 Publishing the statment

16 The Norwegian PCC The Press Ethical System The Code of Ethics The Rights and the Duties of the Editors The PCC`s adjudications In-house codes of ethics based on the formal code The press ethical debate

17 The Norwegian Code of Ethics Ethical Code of Ethics for the printed press, radio and television and online media. Under administration of The Norwegian Press Association (NP) First adopted by NP in 1936 Applied to radio and TV in 1994 Each editor and editorial staff is required to be familiar with the ethical standards and to base their practice on the code

18 The Norwegian Code of Ethics Four chapters 1. The role of the press in society States the obligations of a free and independent press 2. Integrity and responsibility Outlines the need for integrity and responsibility 3. Relations with the sources Details the relations to the sources, including their need for protection and the necessity of checking sources and facts. 4. Publication rules Details instructions concerning where the press should be especially careful with what is published.

19 No exact science based on discussions and reflections

20 The role of the press in society The difficult boundary between what belongs to privacy and what is of public interest.

21 The role of the press in society The difficult boundary between what belongs to privacy and what is of public interest. The suicide of a prime minister s son.

22 Integrity and responsibility Reporters and editors may not hold positions or financial ties that may impair their credibility.

23 Integrity and responsibility Reporters and editors may not hold positions or financial ties that may impair their credibility. All journalism should be independent of advertisers and sponsors.

24 Relations with the sources Be critical to the choice of sources and make sure the information is correct. Editorial decides editing and presentation. Strict rules for the use of hidden camera/ microphone. Do not pay sources for information. Sources may request protection. Also faced police and court.

25 Publication rules Show respect for the privacy, ethnicity and beliefs. Never draw attention to personal or private aspects if they are irrelevant. Take into account how reports on accidents and crime may affect the victims and families. Observe how media coverage of children can get implications for the child. Avoid presumption of guilt in crime and court reporting.

26 Publication rules Be careful with the use of name in covering criminal cases. Make clear what is factual information and what is comment. Make sure that headlines, introductions and announcements not go beyond what is coverage for in the story. The exposed to strong accusations shall have access to simultaneous refutation of factual information.

27 Complaint Reason No.1 - lack of refutation The possibility of refutation should be real: Transparency of charges. Time to answer these.

28 Respect for privacy Members of the royal family have complained twice. Also royal entitled privacy.

29 Identification in criminal cases Policeman charged with murder: Identifying him with name and picture?

30 Being masters of our own house works well! Strong support among editors and journalists. It hurts to be judged by their own. Creates ethical discussions and reflection. A "low threshold" - free and easy for those who complain. No legislation or government control of media content.

31 Thanks for your attention! Words and photos are powerful weapons. Do not abuse them.
