According to a number of observers, this is due to a lack of knowledge, on the part of journalists, of the rules of their profession and the legislative and regulatory frameworks governing the media and...

The post-revolution media sector in Tunisia has entered an uncertain stage where there is a clear lack of regulation and confusion about media-ethics standards. The majority of media professionals does not differ between criticism and defamation, and some media managers incite their employees to go beyond ethical limits in order to increase their audiences and profits. Therefore, there is a general incorrect use of the right of freedom of expression and information by Tunisian media at large. Unfortunately, there isn’t any Press Council to ensure self-regulation among media professionals....

The advancement and ease of access to information technology has accelerated the already pervasive influence of media to the extent that the media has become a major factor in shaping people's ideas, values, concepts and behavior. In a country like Nepal, which is so diverse in terms of gender, caste, religion, ethnicity and language, Media can be a powerful tool to enable Women, Dalits, and other marginalized and excluded communities to be heard by mainstream society.
