There is no sense in discussing the bill on television and radio since it has been drafted without taking into consideration the opinions of the mass media and circles of experts. This is what President of the Union of Journalists of Armenia Satik Seyranyan said during a discussion on the principles of the bill.
According to her, the authors of the bill haven’t even tried to understand the real reasons and challenges in the sector. “The sector needs to be regulated, but it will be impossible to make changes without taking into consideration the opinions of journalists. The adoption of the bill may pose a threat to the mass media and freedom of speech in general,” Seyranyan emphasized.
