It is with great sadness that the International Communications Forum has learnt of the shocking and brutal events in Beirut on Thursday night which left 43 dead and 200 seriously wounded and the subsequent events in Paris on Friday night that left 129 dead, 352 injured, 99 of whom are acutely injured. This threat to the freedom of the world by ISIS, an organisation whose ideology expresses hatred for the other, is deeply and profoundly saddening. We strongly condemn these horrific terror attacks.

For most journalists, spending a week working on a story is a luxury they can only dream of. Most modern editors are simply too busy to concern themselves on a day to day level with being the conscience of their junior reporters. Ethical journalism requires standards of vigilance that are unprecedented precisely because we are our own moral guardians and cannot lean on our bosses any longer, writes the new Chairman of the International Communications Forum, William Morris.
