Mr. Remzi Lani, Director of the Albanian Media Institute, in his speech emphasized the importance of the book and the news in today’s times. “The news” should be accurate and impartial in order to fulfill the continuity of the role of journalism in a democratic society, he said.
Sami Nezaj, co-author of the book, in his speech on the “The news in the media” said that this book addresses an audience that is related to journalism products in Albania with a view to increasing the quality of broadcasting and publishing news.
