Internews Timor-Leste Launches a
Daily News Service
Full Story: http://www.internews.org/news/2005/20050211_timorleste.html
(February 11, 2005) Internews
Timor-Leste has launched a daily news summary service targeting an NGO
(non-governmental organization) audience who want to know what is going
on in Timor-Leste but don't have the resources or linguistic skills to
translate the daily newspapers. Newspapers print in four
different languages, but primarily in Tetum and Indonesian.
This is the first income generating
initiative for the newly formed local media development NGO which is
beginning an "incubator" process under the guidance and support of
Timor-Leste Subscriber News is a
daily local and international media monitoring service. It includes the
main stories from local print media and stories about Timor or
Timor-related issues from the international media.
Specific monitoring is also available
on request for a higher rate. NGOs or businesses can request
"sector-specific" media monitoring which is more detailed information
about any story in local or international media. The service also hopes
to be able to monitor campaigns by local or international NGOs.
Monitoring of radio and TV is also a future option for investigation,
along with analysis of local or international media coverage including
balance, scope and accuracy.
The mission of this new local media
NGO is to support the development of quality and independent media to
help build community and democracy. Income from this subscription
service will be used to subsidize training and technical advice for the
journalists of Timor-Leste.
Internews Timor-Leste is funded by
the United States Agency for International Development.
