    Netrality or unbiasedness is new to the news media in SRi Lanka. As the culture of biased reporting is deeply enshrined in the Sri Lanka culture to report the minorites as demon and the Government and Security Forces(SF) as savious and defenders of security, CBK`s task of ensuring the neutrality is an almost impossible task.

    Even in this forum what SF do in the Northeast, that`s killing, beating and arresting of civilians are blacked out.

    Neutrality of the media is an important ingrediant in democracy, giving equal chance and reporting of news as they happen rather than opinionated reporting must be legally enforced. Character assasinations of members of one party and minorities must be stopped.

    Rupavahini are the most humourless, bigoted, arse-lickers amongst the Sri Lankan media!

    To get free media , it is not president or priminister tell them to act balancely.

    jurnalism should be promoted , there should be degree in jurnalism. in srilanka people have no knowledge become jurnalist . general public look at the paper and news to learn what goes around if someone with such shorter sight write something and peole believing them. these jurnalist pushing their views to public and sometimes they do suceed, results are theTerorists such as JHU and JVPs and all.

    Jurnalism should be high in aganda , media freedom is important. only media can ask any priminister and presidents question what ordenary people wants to ask or have in mind. ( if we look at Jeromy Paxman in BBC even politecians are hesitate to interviewed by him) that shows people are incharge of the country not politicians.

    Jurnalised should belong to a association and they should follow code of conducts. and the association should take legal action if it member is attacked or else.

    not burn sudar oli beecuse they support tamils , or dont kill a defence analyst who is a tamil? think what if LTTE killed all fine singhala jurnalist?

    in jurnalism you must stand on your own feet. and tell the truth. sometimes it can be biased but there should be another jurnalsit who can point it out for you.
