Consiliile de Presă din Moldova și Rusia cooperează în vederea respectării normelor etice la un post de televiziune din Rusia care difuzează și în Republica Moldova
05-03-2013În urma difuzării emisiunii „Pusti govoreat” (moderator - Andrei Malahov) din 24 septembrie 2012, de la postul de televiziune „Pervâi Kanal” din Rusia, Consiliul de Presă din Republica Moldova s-a adresat Consiliului de Presă din Federaţia Rusă (Общественная коллегия по жалобам на прессу Российской Федерации) pentru a analiza respectarea normelor de etică profesională jurnalistică în cadrul acestei emisiuni. În plângerea Consiliului de Presă din Moldova se face referire şi la prevederile Convenţiei cu privire la drepturile copilului, adoptată de Adunarea Generală a Organizaţiei Naţiunilor Unite la 20 noiembrie 1989, Recomandările şi principiile cu privire la relatările despre copii, formulate de Federaţia Internaţională a Jurnaliştilor, Codul de etică profesională a jurnalistului din Rusia şi Carta teleradiodifuzorilor din Rusia.
În această emisiune a fost dezbătut cazul care s-a produs într-un sat din raionul Floreşti, Republica Moldova, unde un adolescent a fost bătut şi umilit de către o altă adolescentă şi prietenii acesteia, iar scenele filmate ale tratamentului degradant au fost plasate pe Internet. Participanţii minori ai acestei situaţii au fost invitaţi în platoul emisiunii „Pusti govoreat”, unde li s-a cerut să povestească detaliat despre cele întâmplate, să răspundă la întrebările insistente şi deseori provocatoare ale moderatorului şi ale altor invitaţi, au fost expuşi oprobriului public, exteriorizându-şi emoţiile şi retrăind situaţia neplăcută care i-a afectat din punct de vedere psihologic. Pe întreaga durată a emisiunii au fost reluate de mai multe ori imaginile video ale tratamentului umilitor şi degradant la care a fost supus unul dintre adolescenţi, fără aplicarea unor mijloace specifice de protecţie a imaginii minorului.
