On August 4th a campaign concerned with the protection of journalists has been launched by the international organization Reporters without Borders. According to the European Federation of Journalists´ (EFJ) blog, the EFJ has joined an international alliance of human-rights organizations, journalist associations and media representatives to protect foreign journalists from surveillance by the German Federal Intelligence Agency (Bundesnachrichtendienst – BND).

The campaign aims to include a clause in the revised BND law to protect journalists. The EFJ blog post states that the signatories of the appeal consider the global mass surveillance by the BND to be a violation of human rights. Furthermore, the signatories of the appeal regard the surveillance of foreign journalists in particular as a serious encroachment on press freedom worldwide.

Slow News, the newest trend in the journalism industry, aims to help the public understand past events. According to the European Journalism Observation (EJO) the aim of this new trend is to revisit stories, analyse and evaluate the facts in a non-partisan way. Slow News tells the public how the story ended and supports them to understand the issue. Susann Eberlein describes in her article in the EFO platform that the first Slow News concept magazine was published by the British journalist Rob Orchard, the Delayed Gratification. Susann Eberlein argues that breaking news from across the world are available twenty four seven, as a live stream of information; however, not all of the displayed and transmitted content is accurate, nor is most of it put into a context that the public can understand the implications. The new journalism trend makes slowness and accuracy a virtue. According to the article Slow News focuses on being the last reporter on the scene and telling the story with the benefit of hindsight.

According to a recent study by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), a well-funded and strong public-service media (PSM) goes hand in hand with sighs of a healthy democracy. The research study highlights that in country with a strong PSM there is a high degree of press freedom, better control of corruption, higher voter turnouts and last but not leas lower levels of right-wing extremism. According to Roberto Suárez Candel, who conducted the research study, this research is particularly interesting since current public debates focus on the issue of low participation in elections, corruption and rise of far right politics across Europe. The research study shows how string public TV and radio is connected to a greater democracy.

In course of its charter review, the BBC is introducing a TV licence for the BBC iPlayer. The BBC is not the first public-service broadcaster who charges or is planning to charge their audience for using online catch-up services. Public-service broadcasters in Germany and Switzerland have already introduced this concept a while ago. According to a recent article in the Guardian, the BBC has lost over a 150m pounds annually by not charging for their online service. In the article Jasper Jackson, a Guardian journalist, mentions that nowadays a significant percentage of the BBC audience don’t use the broadcasters` services on the traditional channels (TV and radio), hence do not pay for the BBC´s services. “How will the BBC detect people watching iPlayer without a licence?”, is the question Jasper Jackson tries to answer in his article. In Germany citizens don’t pay a TV licence anymore, instead all citizens are charged a household excise tax. The difference between household excise tax and traditional TV licence is that the fee is instead of being linked to a certain public-service channel (TV or radio), the household excise tax is linked to the possibility of a household accessing PSB content and services.

Jon Bernsteins article “Facebook’s dominance in journalism could be bad news for us all!” in the Guardian discusses the benefits and disadvantages of social platforms hosting journalistic content. The article claims that the move from social sharing to social distribution tethers readers to gated, algorithmically defined content that chimes with the publics own world view. According to the article, in order to fight the tech giants like Facebook and Google, all media organisations have to form a network. Jon Bernstein claims that this current trend of social media publishing journalistic content could lead to loss of control and financial damage. Furthermore, publisher obsession with algorithm changes and a willingness to give away control of content are evidence of this trend.
