Some time ago I was offered and accepted the role of executive officer of the Media Council of Bermuda.
The Media Council has two main goals — to help resolve complaints against the media and to protect freedom of expression.
It also has a Code of Practice which the media in Bermuda adhere to and which is designed to maintain high professional standards.
My reason for writing this short blog is to try and give the Council some profile to ensure that the people of Bermuda are aware of its existence.
We also have a Facebook page which you can follow and where I post what I hope are interesting items about the media and the media industry around the world.
Members of the public are also welcome to post messages on the page as well.
