Fiji Parliamentary Reporters' Handbook
The purpose of this handbook is to assist journalists in the task of reporting the proceedings of the Parliament of Fiji. It is designed to be read in conjunction with the Parliament of Fiji Handbook. This Reporters’ Handbook provides practical guidance and advice for those carrying out the important role of writing news reports on parliamentary deliberations.
This document will take you through the challenges you may face in reporting on Parliament and how you may overcome them. Because Parliament can sometimes be a complex institution, where doubt exists over a story, advice should be sought from your editor or line manager on how to proceed.
This can be in matters of fact, or interpretation of what has happened in Parliament. As always let impartiality, accuracy, balance and fairness be your guide.
