Researcher wins press freedom award

JAKARTA (JP): Agus Sudibyo, a media researcher with the Foundation for Science, Esthetics and Technology (Yayasan SET) based in Jakarta, won Indonesia's inaugural Press Freedom Award on Wednesday, primarily for his newspaper columns.

The award, given in connection with the World Press Freedom Day, was the brainchild of the Alliance of Independent Journalists (AJI) Indonesia.

Agus' articles advocating for press freedom and the public right to information, appeared in major publications in the country, including Kompas and Koran Tempo dailies.

He is a 1998 graduate of mass communications from the Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta and had worked for the Jawa Post newspaper briefly before deciding on becoming an activist and lobbyist in the media sector.

The award, given in recognition of his writings rather than his activism, was presented at a ceremony to mark the World Press Freedom Day at the Santika Hotel in Jakarta. (emb)

When will AJI, the useless fucks that they are, ever come out with a basic 'code of conduct' for Indonesian journalists. That is a rhetorical question of course. Do you use a question mark for rhetorical questions? I guess not.

code of conduct? you mean, a schedule of fees, don't you?

these are the going rates at The Jakarta Post:

good story, page 1, Rp20m.
good story, inside pages, Rp10m.
not printing bad story, page 1, Rp30m.
not printing bad story, inside, Rp15m.

back to the article: has anyone here actually heard of Agus Sudibyo?
