Broadcasting Principles – Essentially, due to freedom of the press, there is no specific "text of principles" in our law that press organizations and members of the press must comply with. Naturally, there are no legally binding principles or rules for press organizations and press members beyond the general legal rules.
For this reason, members of the press are obliged to comply with the general rules of law in their work. However, there are some basic principles adopted and declared by the Press Council operating in our country.
The basic principles that we, as newstimesturkey.com, accept are as follows:
No one in the broadcasts; Not to condemn or humiliate someone because of their race, gender, age, health, physical disability, social level or religious beliefs,
Limiting freedom of thought, conscience and expression; Not to make publications that would shock or hurt the general sense of morality, religious feelings, or the basic foundations of the family institution,
Journalism, which is a public duty, should not be used for immoral private purposes and interests.
Not to include statements that humiliate, humiliate or slander individuals and organizations beyond the limits of criticism,
Not to make people's private lives the subject of publication, except when required by public interests,
Not publishing news whose investigation is within the scope of journalism, without being investigated or making sure of its accuracy,
Not to publish information provided on condition that it remains confidential, unless the public interest seriously requires it,
Before the distribution process of a media organ is completed, the product produced by that media organ with special efforts should not be presented to the public by another media organ as if it were its own product, and should be careful to indicate the source of special products received from agencies,
Not to declare anyone "guilty" unless he is determined to be guilty by a judicial decision,
Not attributing actions that are considered crimes by law to anyone unless there are reasonable grounds to believe that they are real,
Journalists must protect the confidentiality of their sources. The source's public opinion is personal, political, economic, etc. This excludes cases where it aims to mislead for reasons.
To avoid performing his duties as a journalist with methods and attitudes that may cast a shadow on the dignity of his title,
To avoid making publications that encourage violence and bullying and hurt human values,
To state these qualities of publications that constitute announcements and advertisements in a way that leaves no room for hesitation,
To respect the time limit set for the publication date,
