* NEW REVIEW: Sean Cole: All in Favor...Say I! *

Come read Sean's compiled, downloadable Manifesto on the use of the
first-person in radio storytelling, including responses to all the good
questions Transom visitors asked during his tenure. This is a very useful
back-and-forth, full of encouragement and caution. Sean writes:

"In my incredibly humble opinion, the only hard and fast and immutable
rules are being accurate and fair, telling the truth as well as possible,
and making sure that your storytelling choices benefit the story. To me,
the facts are the structure and the rigor. And I think it?s almost
incumbent upon us as radio reporters to at least try to use the medium to
its fullest advantage and give listeners more than what they?re expecting,
i.e. something memorable, beyond the information we?re conveying."

Shared free-to-use training resources
News and features - Global
Monday, 09 February 2009

Media Helping Media has formed a trial partnership with The News Manual in
order to pool resources so that free training modules can reach a wider
audience. The News Manual was first published as a three-volume book,
aimed initially at journalists working in developing countries and
designed to be a straightforward, no-nonsense guide. For many years it
became a standard text in newsrooms across the Asia-Pacific region.

Media Helping Media (MHM) has been set up to provide training resources
and a voice for those involved in the media in transition states,
post-conflict countries and areas where freedom of expression and media
freedom is under threat.
Training resources

The aim is to bring together a variety of training resources which are
available for all to use for the benefit of anyone working in the media in
difficult circumstances. All are free-of-charge and can be reproduced, as
long as Media Helping Media (or any guest authors) are credited.

4. Running a radio station on free software

Running a radio station on free software

The newest tool to emerge from the Media Development Loan Fund's Campware
Initiative is a tool for managing radio broadcasts and archives called
Campcaster, which enables a PC running Linux to both play sound files
'live' from the studio as well as automatically at a set date and time.

At the same time, it also allows stations using Campcaster to easily
exchange program content, both over the Internet and offline.

Such software, referred to as a playout and automation system, used to
cost thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars, but Campcaster is
offered as free and open source.

5. Murder of Nepalese radio journalist condemned

Murder of Nepalese radio journalist condemned

[excerpt]

The International Association of Women in Radio and Television (IAWRT) has
condemned the murder of young Nepalese radio journalist Uma Singh and has
called on the Government of Nepal to bring her killers to justice.

IAWRT President, Ms Olya Booyar, said the association is joining a
coalition of international organisations to press for justice for the
murdered journalist and greater protection for journalists working in
Nepal.

"Uma Singh was simply doing her job," Ms Booyar said. "She was brutally
murdered by an armed gang in a killing which must appal all right-minded
people."

Ms Singh, a radio journalist in her 20s, was hacked to death by a group of
up to 20 men in her room in the southern city of Janakpur on 11 January.
She died on her way to a hospital in the capital.

While no clear motive has yet emerged for her murder, Ms Singh was noted
for her reporting of women's rights issues and the caste system. No-one
has yet been arrested.

Média & liberté d'expression

CAMEROUN : RAPPORT SUR LES ATTAQUES CONTRE LA PRESSE EN 2008
http://www.camer.be/index1.php?art=4668

La CPJ vient de publier un rapport sur les attaques contre la presse
en 2008 au Cameroun. L'Association de défense des droits des
journalistes dénonce, dans ce document publié dans la journée du 10
février 2009, de graves violations des droits des journalistes. En
dehors des violences physiques, des dirigeants politiques et
d'influentes personnalités ont eu recours aux menaces, aux mesures de
censure et au harcèlement judiciaire afin d'intimider la presse dans
son traitement des sujets sensibles de l'actualité nationale. Sans
compter les pressions financiers.

CENTRAFRIQUE : PLAINTE D'UN JOURNAL CONTRE L'AUTORITÉ DE TUTELLE DES
MÉDIAS
http://tinyurl.com/bteolh

Le quotidien centrafricain privé Le Citoyen a annoncé le 10 février
avoir porté plainte contre le Haut conseil de la communication (HCC),
organe de régulation des médias, pour l'avoir suspendu pendant un
mois. La plainte a été déposée au tribunal administratif afin que
cette juridiction "se prononce" sur cette mesure. Le Citoyen n'a pas
paru du samedi 10 au lundi 12 janvier, a indiqué le directeur du
journal. Dans un communiqué publié lundi, le HCC a annoncé la levée de
sa mesure, la période de suspension ayant expiré. Il reprochait au
Citoyen d'avoir "insulté" et utilisé des "termes indécents" envers les
autorités.

MADAGASCAR : MORT D'UN JOURNALISTE COUVRANT UNE MANIFESTATION
http://tinyurl.com/bwdhqh

Ando Ratovonirina, journaliste de Radio et Télévision Analamanga
(RTA), est mort le 7 février 2009, à Antananarivo, alors qu'il
couvrait les manifestations qui ont fait plusieurs dizaines de morts
Le journaliste, âgé de 25 ans, a été tué par balle devant le palais
présidentiel. Pour Reporters Sans Frontières, il est absolument
insupportable que ce journaliste ait payé de sa vie son effort pour
informer ses concitoyens », a déclaré l'organisation.
