Media Coverage of the Elections – LADE

09Jun09

The Lebanese Association of Democratic Elections (LADE) had the following violation of interest in their report published yesterday:

8. The following television stations were observed:

TL, NBN, NTV, MTV, Future News, LBCI, Manar, ANB

During LADE’s observation of the audiovisual media outlets, the following

results emerged:

  • Preliminarily claiming victory for one group.
  • Bias of reporters during media coverage.
  • Broadcasting electoral statements by male and female candidates.
  • Broadcasting electoral advertisements.
  • Broadcasting opinion polls.

Where was OTV? That needed a whole report on its own, weeks before the election.

I remember even LBC proudly claiming to be the first to have said that March14 won the majority. That’s a violation by LADE. They also experimented with Augmented Reality graphs and figures on Election Night as the results came in.
