VENDREDI 15 JANVIER 2021 BIZWEEK ÉDITION 325 LA TOUR THOMSON REUTERS’REPORT The Impact of Covid on Journalism in Emerging Economies and the Global South COVID-19 is a generation-defining pandemic, impacting every person on the planet. But how is it affecting thoseupon whom we depend for independent and accurate information about this global crisis ? With nearly 40 years’experience supporting independent media and training journalists around the world, the Thomson Reuters Foundation has released a report, on 14th of January, exploring the impact of the pandemic on journalism in emerging economies and the Global South. This story is told for the first time not only through the insights of industry leaders, advocates and media experts - but critically, through the voices of the journalists themselves - too often unheard or silenced. 55 alumni of training programmes run by the Thomson Reuters Foundation (TRF) shared their experiences about living – and working – in the COVID era. These insights, coupled with extensive desk research and analysis, informthe narrative of this new report. Together, these elements shine a spotlight on journalism outside of the Global North, in particular North America and Western Europe, to focus on areas where coverage of the journalism industry tends to be less well told or understood « Doing good journalism in the era of COV- ID-19 has been likened to war reporting. Journalists have been risking their lives to document the frontlines of a battle against an invisible enemy. They placed themselves at the epicentre of the disease to bring us the information we needed in order to protect ourselves », says Antonio Zappulla, Chief Executive Officer of the Thomson Reuters Foundation in the Foreword. However, he adds, the threat is not only in the formof a deadly virus. The pandemic is also being used by malign forces as an opportunity to disrupt, sabotage and hamper the free flow of trusted, independent information. The pandemic has been weaponised to kill free speech. COVID-19 has provided a convenient excuse to usher in a range of reporting restrictions on a sliding scale of severity – from limiting access to data, right through to punitive legislation and even threats to life. In addition, the relentlessonslaught of misinformation and disinformation riddling social media platforms has created real obstacles to truth-telling. New limits to media freedom There are concerns that the COVID crisis is being used to curb media freedoms around the world. This is taking numerous forms, including limiting access to information, attacks on journalists, government closures of news media and new laws that limit press freedom. Amnesty (and others) have commented on how these measures can jeopardise lives, by limiting reporting – as wellas important debate and discussion – about the approaches being taken to tackle the pandemic. « There is no hope of containing this virus if people can’t access accurate information, » said Ashfaq Khalfan, Amnesty International’s Director of Law and Policy. « It is truly alarming to see how many governments are more interested in protecting their own reputations than in saving lives. » Governments have deployed a range of techniques designed to control the pandemic narrative.
