Lat tað vera sagt beinaveg – eg kenni Eir, og eri øgiliga væl við hana. So eg eri neyvan ein neutralur eygleiðari. Men halt kjaft, sum hatta var ein góð sending!! Handan um menninar á heiminum fyri heimleys. Also, Eir hevur eina gávu, sær út til. Saman við henni eru fólk ikki stív og varin og bevíst um, at tey verða filmað. Tey eru bara í sínum lívi, og Eir er til staðar. Eg eri bilsin og fegin um, at tað eydnast so væl. Tí – eg havi eina ella aðrastaðnis hildið, at ein fortreyt fyri at sleppa heilt nær at fólki er, at tey agera, sum um tú ikki var til staðar. Gloyma, at tú – og myndatólið – eru har. Og Eir er ikki ein persónur, sum man gloymir er í rúminum! Hon er full í látri og lívi, og hon luttekur. Og eg eri fegin um, at tað, eg helt, er mótprógvað. Glað, at Eir vísir mær á, at tað allarbesta er slett ikki, at tann við myndatólinum er ósjónlig, men tað allarbesta er, tá tey luttakandi onki hava ímóti at vera nakin og sárbar saman við henni við myndatólinum! Tá tey faktiskt fegin vilja, at hon skal vita, hvussu tey hava tað. TAÐ gevur ektaðar, góðar upptøkur, har vit ikki føla, at vit eru inni í kamarinum hjá fólki, tí vit hava sníkt okkum inn ósædd – men tí vit eru boðin inn. Saman við Eir. Tað er erligt og fair sjónvarp. Deiligt at uppliva! Og forbankað góð sending!

HVUSSU áhugavert segði tú tað var, hvussu nógvar deildarleiðarar Kringvarpið hevur??

So áhugavert, at journalistarnir kunnu og eiga at seta vandan fyri interessukonfliktum – “real or percieved” – til viks og gera innsløg til sjónvarp, útvarp, pluss og kjaksending, um viðurskiftini hjá teimum og deildarleiðara teirra?

Eg haldi, at kringvarpsfólkini áttu at gjørt eina lítla test. Prøva næstu ferð, tit halda, at “Føroya fólk máá fáa at vita, hvussu vánaligir/býttir/óndir politikararnir eru við okkum í Kringvarpinum!” at leka hesa “góðu” søgu til onkran annan miðil, og vita, hvat tey gera við hana. Kemur hon á forsíðuna? So er hon kanska eitt sindur týdningarmikil! Kemur hon ikki á forsíðuna? So skulu tit kanska flyta málið av tíðindaredaktiónini og í inn/útbakkan hjá stjóranum! Umhugsið tað í øllum førum.

Nei, álvara. Trúðvirðið hjá føroyskum journalistum er frammanundan lágt. Frammanundan hava fólk lítið álit á, at journalistarnir vilja ella megna tæna hægri prinsippum, tá teir velja tíðindi út og leggja sítt tilfar til rættis. Og hesin dekningurin av einum innanhýsis máli, har hvør einasti kringvarpsjournalistur er inhabilur, styrkir bara fólk í, at almenni fjølmiðilin er korruptur. Tað ræður bara um at standa journalistunum og lønarposa teirra nóg nær, so slepst í tíðindini! Men her eru kanska onkur nýggj prinsipp upp á spæl, tá viðvíkur óheftni og egnum áhugamálum?

Hetta kann tú vænta av einum journalisti

Eg ætlaði at umseta hetta til føroyskt, áðrenn eg legði tað út, men hugsaði, at tað KANN vera, at eg ikki verði liðug at umseta so øgiliga skjótt. So eg leggi hesar leiðreglurnar fyri journalistar út á enskum. Til gleði og gagns fyri journalistar, miðlafólk og fólkið alt!

Hetta er “code of ethics” hjá Society of Professional Journalists. 
Seek Truth and Report It
Journalists should be honest, fair and courageous in gathering, reporting and interpreting information.

Journalists should:

— Test the accuracy of information from all sources and exercise care to avoid inadvertent error. Deliberate distortion is never permissible.
— Diligently seek out subjects of news stories to give them the opportunity to respond to allegations of wrongdoing.
— Identify sources whenever feasible. The public is entitled to as much information as possible on sources’ reliability.
— Always question sources’ motives before promising anonymity. Clarify conditions attached to any promise made in exchange for information. Keep promises.
— Make certain that headlines, news teases and promotional material, photos, video, audio, graphics, sound bites and quotations do not misrepresent. They should not oversimplify or highlight incidents out of context.
— Never distort the content of news photos or video. Image enhancement for technical clarity is always permissible. Label montages and photo illustrations.
— Avoid misleading re-enactments or staged news events. If re-enactment is necessary to tell a story, label it.
— Avoid undercover or other surreptitious methods of gathering information except when traditional open methods will not yield information vital to the public. Use of such methods should be explained as part of the story
— Never plagiarize.
— Tell the story of the diversity and magnitude of the human experience boldly, even when it is unpopular to do so.
— Examine their own cultural values and avoid imposing those values on others.
— Avoid stereotyping by race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, geography, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance or social status.
— Support the open exchange of views, even views they find repugnant.
— Give voice to the voiceless; official and unofficial sources of information can be equally valid.
— Distinguish between advocacy and news reporting. Analysis and commentary should be labeled and not misrepresent fact or context.
— Distinguish news from advertising and shun hybrids that blur the lines between the two.
— Recognize a special obligation to ensure that the public’s business is conducted in the open and that government records are open to inspection.


Minimize Harm

Ethical journalists treat sources, subjects and colleagues as human beings deserving of respect.

Journalists should:

— Show compassion for those who may be affected adversely by news coverage. Use special sensitivity when dealing with children and inexperienced sources or subjects.
— Be sensitive when seeking or using interviews or photographs of those affected by tragedy or grief.
— Recognize that gathering and reporting information may cause harm or discomfort. Pursuit of the news is not a license for arrogance.
— Recognize that private people have a greater right to control information about themselves than do public officials and others who seek power, influence or attention. Only an overriding public need can justify intrusion into anyone’s privacy.
— Show good taste. Avoid pandering to lurid curiosity.
— Be cautious about identifying juvenile suspects or victims of sex crimes.
— Be judicious about naming criminal suspects before the formal filing of charges.
— Balance a criminal suspect’s fair trial rights with the public’s right to be informed.

Act Independently
Journalists should be free of obligation to any interest other than the public’s right to know.

Journalists should:

—Avoid conflicts of interest, real or perceived.
— Remain free of associations and activities that may compromise integrity or damage credibility.
— Refuse gifts, favors, fees, free travel and special treatment, and shun secondary employment, political involvement, public office and service in community organizations if they compromise journalistic integrity.
— Disclose unavoidable conflicts.
— Be vigilant and courageous about holding those with power accountable.
— Deny favored treatment to advertisers and special interests and resist their pressure to influence news coverage.
— Be wary of sources offering information for favors or money; avoid bidding for news. 

Be Accountable
Journalists are accountable to their readers, listeners, viewers and each other.

Journalists should:

— Clarify and explain news coverage and invite dialogue with the public over journalistic conduct.
— Encourage the public to voice grievances against the news media.
— Admit mistakes and correct them promptly.
— Expose unethical practices of journalists and the news media.
— Abide by the same high standards to which they hold others.

The SPJ Code of Ethics is voluntarily embraced by thousands of
writers, editors and other news professionals. The present version of
the code was adopted by the 1996 SPJ National Convention, after months
of study and debate among the Society’s members.
