Indicators of News Diversity

When considering which factors determine whether a national press system is diverse or not the following factors should be taken into account:

  1. The number of different news sources, both public and private, which portray different points of view.
  2. Whether legal, economic or other powers are able to restrict access to the media.
  3. Whether the government and public media are able to remain unbiased and serve the public interest.
  4. Whether independent news agencies able to gather and distribute news or whether there restrictions on this.
  5. Whether the public aware of the ownership of different media companies in order that they can evaluate the objectivity of the media for themselves.
  6. Whether the media reflects and represents a broad range of social interest.
