Adimaitoga takes a swipe at media Assistant Minister for iTaukei Affairs Selai Adimaitoga today stated in Parliament that reckless reporting by journalists led to violence and destruction of the economy in the past years.

Adimaitoga in her end of the week statement said dishonest media has played a role in every troubling event in Fiji's history.

She said media organisations have a duty to tell the truth to the public and not something that would stir political instability or violence.

“We must ensure that history does not repeat itself as Fijians deserves honest and fair media. Every media organisation should only speak the truth and fairly report the facts."

She said while many reporters bring critical messages for people and support  Fiji's young democracy, instead of trying to divide it, some still do not practice this.

“The Fiji Media Act is there to ensure that the public is protected should the journalist report in an unethical or illegal manner.

“Only fools, ignore history those who do are doomed to repeat the worst of it. Fiji cannot afford the reckless reporting of the past,” she said.

She went on to question the Media Industry Development Authority of Fiji for not taking action on media organisations that have been reporting recklessly.

“If complaints have been reported the Media Industry Development Authority of Fiji why haven't been a media organisations been investigated,” she said.

“Will something be done about the current situation of reckless reporting, if nothing is done there is a threat that history will repeat itself.

“The media have responsibility to publish responsibility to publish the truth. They also have a responsibility to maintain professional standards, a responsibility to maintain integrity.”
