YOUTH JOURNALISTS AND VIDEOGRAPHERS: Meet UNESCO

–– Book review by Patrick SCIARRATTA*
In the Spring 2019, the Director of the Media Education Center in Belgrade introduced me to a new ‘Handbook for Journalism Education and Training’ from UNESCO (the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization, in Paris). 
MEC Director Miomir Rajcevic introduced me to the ‘handbook’ that is in fact a full course workup, reviewing at first what has been called ‘fake news,’ but discusses the topic in much greater detail – and its title betrays its thoughts on the subject.
Journalism, Fake News, and Disinformation” is the actual title.  (Available free, at: https://unesdoc.unesco.org/ark:/48223/pf0000265552)

by Sevgin OKTAY, The Light Millennium
NGO Representative to the United Nations Department of Public Information

“The first Amendment of the United States constitution does not protect freedom of speech that promotes hatred and for that matter incitement to kill.  And yet, there are summer youth camps in this country where they incite young minds to harbor hatred and killing towards certain ethnic groups as can be found in some published books. The point was made that perhaps courts are not applying what the constitution provides.”
