Nobody has the authority to teach journalists how to conduct their profession- Media Minister

Sunil C. Perera and Chithralal Jayasingha in Colombo

Colombo, 03 May, (Asiantribune.com): Minister of Information and Media Anura Priyadarshana Yapa says nobody has the authority to teach journalists how to conduct their profession.

What even the government could do is only to point out their weaknesses. The minister however said Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe at a ceremony held yesterday advised journalists how to conduct their profession.

In a media briefing held in Colombo on Friday, Minister Yapa said hidden intention of the United National Party by making such remarks on the verge of the Eastern Polls could be well understood.

The minister strongly rejected an allegation made by a journalist that the state-run media institutions are partial and said government’s media has given room for the ideas and views of every political party.
