Elections and the Media
TBILISI. 3 October 2013 – Four Georgian non-governmental organizations presented intermediate results of a pre-election media monitoring.
At a press conference on 3 October 2013, CRRC Georgia, Internews – Georgia, International Society for Fair Elections and Democracy (ISFED), and the Civic Development Institute (CDI), presented key findings in the areas of impartial reporting, and balanced and analytical coverage of the presidential candidates.
They also introduced a revamped website www.mediamonitor.ge with new functions for data analysis which allows users to do their own research.
Pre-election media monitoring runs with assistance from the European Union and UNDP. Kicked off in May 2013, the monitoring focuses on the coverage of the October 2013 presidential elections in Georgia and examines some 40 media outlets, including television, radio, printed press and the online media.
"We believe that media monitoring was one of the factors to push forward positive changes in the Georgian media landscape – stronger links with the public, more accountability to the audience. It is also an effective tool for the media itself. It provides an objective and credible data which both public and the media can use to assist the development of professional and free media, " Said Inita Paulovica, UNDP Resident Representative a.i. in Georgia.
Regular updates and monthly reports are available at the website: www.mediamonitor.ge and the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/mediamonitor.ge.
