There is still much controversy about whether the press should be regulated or not. Some years back the notion of a Press Council was evoked and recently the govt has come up with the Media Commission Bill. But, both created an uproar among journalists who feared for freedom of the press.
So, do you think the press should be regulated?Are our laws enough to ensure responsible journalism?
Are the journalists’ fears justified? Will they really gag the media?
Do you think Mauritius should have a Press Council just like in Australia? Wat are your views about the Media Commision Bill?
N according to you, how was the Media Commission Bill reported/treated in the press?
And lastly, will all this fuss about media regualtion remain mere rhetoric?
