"When breaking news becomes BROKEN news"

AMIC session on 25 June on East and West perspectives on freedom, responsibility and regulation:

Javed Jabbar, Pakistan media activist, provocatively said that “responsibility” should be seen as conceptually prior to “freedom of expression”.

The reason? Because “responsibility” entails fairness, truth, accuracy, balance – and respect for others. This is not necessarily the case with freedom of expression.

He hastened to say that “responsibility” should not be used to restrict free speech, but to make it more humane. It was foundational.
