Rasing social issues
The task of journalism is also to fight for those people who are not totally capable of doing it themselves. The journalists of Ekspress Grupp constantly raise relevant and problematic topics creating a public debate or leading to remarkable changes. We have raised various topics for public discussions and changes: violent behaviour and suicides of young people, problems related to caring for family members and care home issues, money laundering scandals, domestic violence, addictions, adoption and custody problems, etc.
Covering difficult, sensitive and complicated topics gives the journalists an opportunity to draw the public’s attention to the processes that are important for the society’s development at large and impact them in a positive way. For group companies, it is important to keep a balance between news stories that are attractive to media consumers and require immediate attention, and treatment of social issues that require analysis and are forward-looking.
The employees of Ekspress Group companies have actively launched and volunteered in covering several important topics that are crucial for social and community development.
