Following recent terrorist atrocities many viewers, who include journalists, feel much disquiet at the way news coverage is being shown on television.  It may be well-intentioned, yet the cumulative effect is not in tune with the way most of us deal with adversity and it’s time that we arrived at a more considered approach.

Without wishing to limit the spread of positive information, I’m suggesting that we decide on a code of practice for television presentations that will be similar in style to the Training Charter for vocational trainers.

My intention is to put a list together before next week and if you have any suggestions you would like to be included, please send me a direct message on Twitter.
