Future Media News
Independent, Accurate, and On-Time
Our editorial policy is not dictated to us by government, civil society, or business. We choose the stories we cover and, while remaining impartial in our reporting, strive to at all times report from ‘the right side of history’.
We may not always be the first with a story but when we cover a story you can be assured that it is has been verified and is accurate
Our stories will still be timeous and relevant to the current news cycle, not days old and no longer of any interest to our listener.
OWNERSHIP & EDITORIAL INFORMATION
Future Media News is wholly owned by Namibia Future Media Holdings (Pty) LTD and does not derive funding from any other sources. The choice of what stories to run is left entirely to the news team under the guidance of Broadcast Editor, David Bishop.
While every effort is taken to ensure mistakes do not happen and inaccuracies do not creep into news bulletins should a report be issued in error or a factual discrepancy end up in a bulletin this will be corrected at the start of the next possible bulletin following the discovery of such error.
In a quest to uphold a high standard of media ethics, integrity and professional services Future Media News subscribes to the self-regulatory ‘Code of Ethics and Conduct for Namibian Print, Broadcast and Online Media’ which was established by Namibian editors, senior journalists, and key legal stakeholders, and is backed by the Editors’ Forum of Namibia (a non-profit, non-governmental and voluntary organisation of which Namibia Future Media Holdings (Pty) LTD are also a member) and the Media Ombudsman.
In terms of this code (which can be accessed here: http://www.mediaombudsmannamibia.org/downloads/codeofethics_online.pdf) Future Media News commits to uphold the high standards of journalism laid out in the code and subject any output to scrutiny by the Media Ombudsman and the elected Media Complaints Committee and Media Appeals Committee should a complaint be filed about any of the content covered by the news team.
