Ms Marlena Polok-Kin told us a lot about the “Dziennik Zachodni” newspaper, her journalist career and every day life in the newspaper redaction. The participants of the training course had many questions. Also our journalist was curious about the situation in our countries. We found out that there are still some countries in Europe where the media are being manipulated. As Ms Marlena said, the job of a journalist is never boring but really demanding at the same time. It takes many years to develop, earn trust and improve the skills. But the most important is to stay honest and never let the reader down!
Presenting the same news from different perspectives was a workshop we will definitely use with the youngsters in our country. It was simple but so educating at the same time. We were divided into four groups. Each team was a worker of a different orientation media station (left/right wing, neutral, pro LGBT). We had to present the news according to “OUR” beliefs. It was a nice activity because of two reasons. Firstly, it showed that we need to be careful with interpreting the news we watch in the TV (we need to find an objective source). Secondly, it was a good exercise to actually present the side that we do not personally support.
