The level of critical thinking in Fiji, the ability to think outside the box, the ability to have that imagination regarding what constitutes our society is very much lacking.
Acting Prime Minister, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum highlighted this at the World Media Freedom Day celebration at Fiji National University in Nasinu.
He says media organisations should be bold enough to carry out analysis of situations themselves rather than just reporting on what people are saying and give impartial assessments of situations from their own analysis.
He says if we have a journalist that has a pre-independence way of thinking, it will affect the way they view what news is and it will affect the way they will construct the news.
Sayed-Khaiyum says freedom of imagination and creativity is very important for society.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
