Children at risk do sell many newspapers
Right to information versus the rights of minors under debate in Porto
00:30
HELENA NORTE
In nearly six thousand newspaper articles on children, published in 2008 in four Portuguese newspapers, 65% were minors at risk. Conclusion: children are "emotional anchor" that sell many newspapers.

Examples of this abound: Joana, Maddie, Alexandra, just to name a few. All we know, even by name and in some cases, we saw his picture wide open on the evening news and front page news.

The right to information versus the rights of children, such as protection of their privacy, was discussed yesterday at a seminar held at the Fundação António Cupertino de Miranda (Oporto), the initiative of the National Commission for Protection of Children and Young People in Risk.

When identification is not straightforward - as in Emerald, where the image of his face has been preserved - the truth is that they were supplied all the elements that make the child easily recognizable, since the image of adults who competed, the place where lived, the school he attended.

This type of identification is also an indirect attack on the right to privacy of children, stressed Lydia Marope. A researcher at the Center for Journalism and Media Research said of the double standards applied to "our" children and "other" as reflected in a massive dissemination of the image and full details of the case Alexandra, and the difference in treatment depending on the stratum socio-economic development. The Internet has introduced a new aggravating factor: the effects of media exposure now have no boundaries.

If there are disparities in the treatment given to newspaper stories that involve minors, the projected image is also dichotomous: they are either victims or offenders are concluded Sara Pereira, a researcher at the University of Minho, to conduct a study on the representation of children and youth in the media .

Proof of this is that in 2043 the 5929 news stories reviewed, the child appears associated with issues of justice and protection and in 832 situations in which caused a disturbance.

Pedro Mourao, president of Portfolio Committee on Professional Journalist, complained that "most young journalists to disregard the basic rules of professional conduct, a prohibition on identifying victims of all types of crime and abuse, under any circumstances.

That's really interesting. The president of the journalist's association does not sound happy with the new and young reporters at all.

But what called my attention was that "children are "emotional anchor" that sell many newspapers.". True, it shows the morbid taste of both journalists and readers.

But if only these young journalists would use their powers for good rather than evil.

If children stories sell newspapers, then why the need to add smears and gossip about those involved in the child's story. This is what they should be discussing, not whether or not the children and their story should be in the paper at all, because of course missing children should be all over the paper. How else is the public going to help to find them?
