Last year, speaking at the conference entitled “Journalism after 30 years of renewal process - theoretical and practical issues.”, President of Vietnam Journalists Association (VJA) Thuan Huu said that 30 years is a meaningful period during which the reform process initiated and led by the Party has gained historic accomplishments acknowledged by the domestic and international public.
Journalism played a leading role in disseminating and promoting the reform policies of the Party, he said. Journalism has also renewed itself to catch up with the development of the country, meeting increasing demand of the revolutionary cause and gaining many meaningful achievements, he added.
Meanwhile, Nguyen The Ky, a member of Party Central Committee and general director of the Voice of Vietnam, said that journalism has developed into various forms. News agencies have focused on renewing and improving news quality.
However, language in the mass media is used improperly in many cases, with carelessly-written words and sentences. Shocking headlines are made to lure readers, but fail to reflect the facts. “Vietnamese language use on media will affect negatively and widely on the public, especially the youth,” he said, suggesting relevant agencies complete laws on Vietnamese and language use. Each news agency should have a unit tasked with overseeing language use, he said.
