Recession in Ireland hits fundraising The deepening economic gloom in Ireland is beginning to be felt in the charity sector, according to reports in the media and from some charities. Already one of the most high profile charity balls in Ireland has fallen victim to the Irish recession.The Irish Times says that next year’s Toothfairy Ball has been cancelled and the million-plus it raised for three charities, including Adi Roche’s Chernobyl Children’s Project, will be a big loss.“Even last June, I felt the auction was like pulling teeth. There was no money in the room,” said Roche. As a result, the charity will have to dip into its emergency reserves for the first time in its existence.It is also understood that a number of major Irish charities are considering a public appeal to ask donors not to cut back on their charitable giving. This is in response to a decline in income with a number of events and appeals.From the late 1990s to last year many Irish charities experienced significant income growth in parallel with the boom in the Irish economy and many fear that the recession will have a direct impact on their fundraising.Some charities in the social welfare area fear a double whammy of declining fundraising and government cut backs in their grant income.

And even though Republic TV is not a member of NBA and does not subscribe to our Code, we still take strong exception to cases filed against its editorial staff.” (emphasis supplied)News Broadcasters Assocation has firmly stated in its Press Release that it “stands for the freedom of speech and expression of the media as enshrined in the Constitution of India”.At the same time, the Statement reads, “we endorse the practice of ethics in journalism and put fair and balanced reporting at the core of what we report upon. NBA reprehends any attempt to target journalists doing their work in newsrooms but, on the other hand, we disapprove of any vengeful reporting by media.” (emphasis supplied)Significantly, the Press Release states,”We condemn the reporting of baseless stories which subverts and interferes with the functioning of the law enforcement agencies. We appeal to the Mumbai police to ensure that no journalists are made victims of this crossfire.” (emphasis supplied)”Not To Cross Lakshman Rekha”The Statement makes an appeal to the journalists working with Republic TV, “not to cross the Lakshman Rekha as clearly observed by the Bombay High Court.”Further, it states,”NBA once again reiterates that it does not support toxic content and unethical journalism. News broadcasters are governed by the independent regulatory body, NBSA, headed by (Retd.) Justice A.K. Sikri. NBSA over the years has played an extremely important role in being a watchdog by monitoring content of news channels.” (emphasis supplied)The Statement also says that it has acted against well-known national and regional broadcasters by levelling fines, apologies and warnings in several matters including the coverage of the death of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.Further, the NBA makes an appeal that non-member broadcasters follow the Code of Ethics and Guidelines of NBSANBA’s Stand in connection with CBI probe in TRP ScamNBA has expresses serious concern at the open-ended FIR registered by the UP police against media for alleged TRP manipulation.https://twitter.com/livelawindia/status/1318549640934006787It further says,”The speed with which the case was transferred to CBI overnight raises doubts about the intentions. A complaint filed against unknown persons by an individual who has no locus standi may lead to a witch-hunt against the media, its advertisers and advertising agencies. We sincerely urge the government to immediately withdraw the case referred to CBI.” (emphasis supplied)Lastly, it states that “BARC has a mechanism to deal with such cases. An internal competent body headed by (Retd.) Justice Mukul Mudgal is capable and empowered to look into cases related to TRP data tampering. All cases related to TRP manipulation should be transferred to this authority.”About NBAThe News Broadcasters Association (NBA) represents the private television news & current affairs broadcasters.
