Journalists discuss the Communications Law in forum
Three journalists expressed their views on the Communications Law, in an academic forum carried out yesterday in Guayaquil.
Orlando Perez, editor of El Telegrafo, along with Juan Carlos Calderon, an investigative journalist and Rolando Panchana, anchorman, presented their versions, in that order, to dozens of students and teachers at the Escuela Superior Politecnica del Litoral (Espol).
Perez stressed the importance of the Law that is in effect since June 25. He said the quality of journalism in the country will improve and that certain rights of the people will be better protected.
Calderon, the former director of the closed magazine Vanguardia and former editor of Diario Expreso of Guayaquil, explained his views with the media lynching and the two institutions created by those rules, as well as community media and equal participation that will be given to national artists.
Panchana resumed the latter issue, ensuring that the Communications Act encourage domestic production artistic musical aspects, television, film and advertising.
