Chronicle

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

I believe and always will believe, irrevocably, that one of the main functions of the journalist is providing the news in society of how thorough, accurate, true, complete and free of any personal subjectivity, since all those who practice journalism, so I understand, it must inevitably have a personal priority public welfare, thus respecting the right to be properly informed inherent in each and every one of the inhabitants of a country. The journalist must regardless of their cultural ancestry or ethnic origin founding and supporting the development of its work, at the time of providing the news, in the truthfulness and objectivity, leaving aside any passion personal, so provided that service to society in a balanced, concise, clear, credible, and reliable way. It is true that journalism means not only limited to communicate facts, news, political, social, sporting, economic, scientific, cultural, etc., but in a broad sense, and for the benefit of the citizen Assembly, comprises also the Chronicle, critique, review, interview, news of human interest, journalism, research, opinion, analysis, etc. Sadly in Bolivia a large number of communication workers forget that there is a time and a place for everything and only devoted to mix mentioned above, and since the country traverses today crucial moments that will decide their future through general elections leaving sobrando journalists who forget their real responsibility to society to the degree that some openly support a political party and others censor him decidedlyboth sides subverting the information and making accusations and insignificant analysis by omitting the expectation of a people in respect of their means to work towards the society whole and not only from a group or groups. It is not superficially generalised around the actions of journalists in Bolivia but simply observe media showing between private and State cynically irreconcilable positions that they only generate skepticism of society toward its media, a cynicism that turns off the ability of the journalist see and feel things in the news and human context. .
