Dunya News adopts code of conduct


In an apparent effort to avoid controversial situations and promote transparency and objectivity in the field of electronic journalism, the management of DunyNews TV channel has come up with a code of conduct for their anchors, after a much publicised saga involving two of their primetime talk show hosts, Mubasher Lucman and Mehar Bukhari, and a property tycoon, Malik Riaz, involved in an ongoing case against the son of Chief Justice of Pakistan, put the channel in the way of many a scathing word and searing eye. The code of conduct, the implementation of which will be overseen by a three-member editorial board, calls for “honesty, accuracy, objectivity and transparency” as its “guiding principles”.
