International news reporting in SEE countries
08.03.2017: Project Research team "Partnership in Southeast Europe for the Development of the Media"
For example, according to the Bosnian report, only 10% of the news space is reserved to foreign news. Against the background of a quite eventful year, what was on the rise was the so-called analytical opus, i.e. the correlation 􀄸of the international events􀄹 with Bosnia and Herzegovinas international position. The Albanian daily Panorama sported no news on the Brexit vote on the very day of the referendum, but only an editorial. All the same, on November 8, 2016the newspaper did not mention anything on US elections and did not have a world section at all. On the other hand, in a very unusual move for the Albanian media, Top Channel TV station devoted the whole main news edition of June 24 to the reporting and analysis of the Brexit referendum, from voting, to economics, and even to the expected effects on sports. The Macedonian report notes that false news is the only direct link between the American presidential elections and Macedonia, despite the big appetite for news on this topic of the local public. Instead, it received sketchy information that was often not properly framed, and there was no thorough analysis in the domestic media, reads the report.

The situation of public service media displays every major problem of the media sector in the region. The grip of the partial political interests in which these institutions find themselves is so strong that their operations constitute a kind of barometer for the state of media freedom.

A crowded and rather poor media market, unable to secure the sustainability of media operations, a high level of job insecurity making the journalists vulnerable to political and economic pressures and more often than not leading to self-censorship are some of the conclusions of the Regional report on the Employment Conditions of Journalists in Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia launched by the Center for Independent Journalism in Bucharest, to mark May 3 World Press Freedom Day...

Working Conditions for Journalists in Bosnia and Herzegovina
17.03.2015: Radenko Udovicic
The Media Initiatives organization from Sarajevo, carried out a survey on working conditions for journalists in the period of July August 2014 as part of the regional project South-East European Partnership for Media Development Project, implemented in collaboration with the Mediacentar Foundation. This topic is deeply interwoven with a number of current economic, media and political problems in BiH and the following report is a testimony to a socially turbulent period where media and journalists are struggling to survive both in en ethical (professional) and economic sense. It will be shown, and this is not a characteristic of only countries in transition, that these two elements are mutually dependent to large extent.

19.08.2008: Group of authors
Media products “have a social, cultural and democratic value that makes them special within market conditions,” but just as media owners tend to overlook the special values of media products, debates about the media and journalism tend to overlook the fact brought to the forefront in this SEENPM research: all media content is a product of work and is strongly affected by the conditions under which individual workers perform. Orderly social conditions in which media professionals are able to perform their work undisturbed are in the interest of society as a whole.

Prime time domestic television news of MTV and RTL Klub
31.10.2007: Péter Bajomi-Lázár – Áron Monori
Research shows three major trends in contemporary television news. Firstly, Hungarian broadcasters pay little attention to foreign news, especially to what happens in neighboring countries. Secondly, there is a clear-cut division of labor between the major public service and the major commercial broadcaster: whereas the former treats public interest stories in detail, the latter focuses on human interest stories. And thirdly, neither of the monitored stations has been biased in any significant way.

Prime-time news programs on TVCG and TV IN
14.09.2007: Association of Young Journalists
Dnevnik 2 noticeably precedes INpuls when it comes to covering events related to visits of Montenegrin delegations to foreign countries because, unlike IN TV, TVCG usually sends a TV crew to cover such events directly. These kinds of items as a rule are affirmative with regard to Montenegrin state politics and are completely deprived of any kind of critical remarks.

10.09.2007: IJC Research Department
Public TV Moldova 1 should move the focus from public officials to common people. Events have to be approached from the point of view of those watching the newscast and stories ought to start with the effects that events, phenomena or decisions might have on people’s lives.

Monitoring and analysis of TV news programmes in Serbia – RTS, RUV and TVB92
31.08.2007: Dubravka Valic Nedeljkovic
The social and political context has fully imposed the manner of selection and arrangement of information in primetime news and political programmes in the monitored media in Serbia. It is clear that media in a country which does not have defined borders, which still has not signed a document on association with the EU, which is burdened with Balkan conflicts, give the most attention to international politics (22.31% on RTS, 18.68% on RUV and 17.52% on B92).
