Burgess, 54, is also active in his church and community. I wish him well. Agreed on June 9, and began on October 14, as an eight-person council. The council was chosen by an independent selection committee. It is the first time Bermuda had an independent media council.
It was promoted after then-Premier Ewart Brown, who wanted the press tamed, tabled legislation to form a Government appointed anti-press council. Local journalists and global press freedom campaigners claimed it would be politically biased and could infringe freedom of expression and volunteered to form an independent council.
As a result Dr. Brown decided to take the proposed legislation off the table before Members of Parliament voted on it. At that time, some local politicians were opposed to true democracy and fundamental press freedoms. They were not aware, or omitted to mention, that voluntary press codes - not legislation made by and on behalf of their governments - apply in all the world's democracies.
Unlike them, Bermuda does not have a "gutter" or "yellow" press so responsible Bermuda media saw no need to have a voluntary press code. Unlike Canada, USA, etc where freedom of the press is built to their constitutions or elsewhere into their constitutional rights, Bermuda has no such guaranteed press freedoms.
The global network of editors, media executives and journalists, based in Vienna, issued a statement in May arguing that the proposed council would be inherently biased, would infringe press freedom and could prevent the free flow of information.
It urged the Government to withdraw the draft legislation and talk again to the Island's media industry about how it should be regulated. The bill was tabled in Bermuda's House of Assembly on May 7, by then-Premier Ewart Brown but managed to avoid enactment after the Media Council of Bermuda was approved as a compromise.
Had this not been done, six persons would have been appointed by the Governor on the recommendation of the Premier, with just five further media representatives. Most worryingly, section 15 3 d of the proposed act contained a powerful prior restraint clause that enabled the council to prevent the publication and broadcasting of 'any news, or comment on the news, that is the subject of the complaint.
Due to the bias inherent within the council, this power could have been abused to prevent the free flow of information within Bermuda and might be used by complainants to prevent investigative journalism.
The IPI, which works to safeguard press freedom, said the "controversial" media bill appeared to have "more in common with the media legislation of some of the repressive governments in Latin America, than with the First Amendment tradition of one of its close trading partners, the United States.Article PDF.
