Media and Elections Website of Detector Media
January 15 – Detector Media (DM) re-launched, with Internews support, its website Media and Elections (http://vybory.detector.media/) analyzing and distributing news and information about the media during the 2019 election campaigns.
The website contains a wide array of sections – Events, Journalists’ Rights, Manipulations, Trends, Social Networks, and Resources. The philosophy of this web resource is to report about media issues that arise during elections, monitor the security of journalists’ work and help protect them. In the near future, the website will have a section for complaints about regional media violations of ethical standards while reporting on the elections.
In addition, the website Media and Elections will monitor political advertising and analyze the decisions of ad hoc expert bodies set up to monitor political ads during the elections (if such bodies are set up).
