Media and government relations in Papua New Guinea
Duffield, Lee R. (2006) Media and government relations in Papua New Guinea. In Papoutsaki, Evangelia & Rooney, Dick (Eds.) Media, Information and Development in Papua New Guinea. DWU Press, Madang, Papua New Guinea, pp. 95-118.
All is not well with news media in Papua New Guinea. Media and government relations are stressed, a situation adverse to the country's development. Media organisations have to deal with operational difficulties, threats against editorial freedom, and harassment or physical danger experienced by journalists. Yet there are positive factors providing hope for the future, especially that key element, freedom to publish, which goes together with a habit of openess in public life as part of the national culture. That is the main finding of a study made during a working visit to Papua New Guinea.
