The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) will launch its ethical guide book for Filipino media practitioners and journalists on Wednesday, November 3.
The book titled, “Ethical Guide for Filipino Journalists” will be launched virtually through the NUJP’s social media platforms. The book was written in partnership with international non-profit organization Internews and the USAID.
The NUJP, formed in 1988, is a media organization, which promotes the interests of Filipino journalists and of the press. The group is composed of different journalists from various news organizations in the country and overseas.
According to the NUJP, the book aims “to serve as a tool to guide journalists and newsrooms on the ethical conduct of journalism.” The guide was created through research and a series of consultations with Filipino journalists, according to the group.
The book also featured key events in the history of Philippine journalism where journalists faced various ethical concerns and the lessons that can be drawn from these experiences, the NUJP added. The launch will also feature various journalists from different platforms as panelists.
ABS-CBN reporter and anchor Mike Navallo will be sitting as one of the panelists, along with Bacolod-based multimedia journalist and NUJP auditor Marchel Espina, and veteran journalist Vergel Santos.
