“Media as watchdogs of public interest”

The EJN will conduct a workshop on “Media as watchdogs of public interest” for 16 journalists and editors in Skopje, Macedonia as part of a three-year media literacy programme run by the Media Diversity Institute.

In many cases, journalists and media in Macedonia cover topics that are interesting to the public, with sensationalistic headlines structured solely to attract a larger audience. During the two-day workshop participants will be acquainted with the role of media as the watchdogs of public interest, and learn how to better grapple with issues of public interest, and how to cover them in their news reporting.

The workshop is planned ‎30-31 March 2017.
