Video is unavailable at this time.

This week’s edition of Reporter will be discussing the concept of conflicts of interest. What constitutes a conflict of interest and when should people declare a conflict interest? Are conflicts of interest an ethical issue or do they constitute something else entirely? Is a journalist still a journalist once a story points out facts outside the scope of a story, or once they go against the editorial stand of the media they represent?

Saviour Balzan discusses these issues among others on Monday’s edition of Reporter.

Reporter airs on Monday at 10.05pm on Monday, with a repetition on Tuesday at 1.30pm and Wednesday at 7pm, on TVM2.
