連署訴求:


媒體不是老闆的私器!

傳播工作者對旺旺集團主事者的連署聲明

中時集團負責人變更案日來引起社會廣大關注,尤以接手經營的旺旺集團,面對NCC的決議及外界不同意見所採取的反擊,更是備受議論。身為傳播實務界的一份子,我們不僅和社會大眾相同,對此案的社會衝擊與影響備感關注,更因事涉我們所服務的產業環境,而有唇齒相依、不能噤聲的特殊感受。

參與連署的我們,未必對NCC的決議存有完全相同的看法,也未必認同外界對旺旺集團的所有批評。但是,當我們看到旺旺集團的主事者,完全不顧媒體的專業原則與文化屬性,肆無忌憚的攻擊異議者,甚至採取司法行動對付異議者時,那種肅殺粗暴之氣,不只讓我們感到無端的厭惡,更讓我們陷入深沉的恐懼。難道我們所工作的環境將要淪落為如此沒有尊嚴、沒有安全的險惡之境?

因此,我們決定站出來表達以下嚴肅的呼籲:

一、 我們並不反對企業家經營媒體,但媒體不是老闆的私器,它是文化事業,請有意經營中時集團的旺旺集團主事者,不要對不同意見者動輒以廣告進行公審、以存證信函進行威嚇。

二、 我們並不反對媒體捍衛自己的權益,但媒體不是老闆的私器,它是社會公器,請有意經營中時集團的旺旺集團主事者,不要完全置基本的平衡報導於不顧,棄最低的言論公平如敝屣。

三、 我們並不反對自由市場的媒體經營理念,但媒體不是老闆的私器,更不只是一件商品,不能因此犧牲員工的工作尊嚴與專業自主,不應將媒體工作者視為聽命辦事的作業員,一個命令一個新聞,一個口號一個動作。

其實,不單中時集團以外的傳播工作者廣泛關注此事,許多中時集團內部同仁也向我們顯示了他們的憂慮,只是礙於身份,不便公然出聲而已。我們要嚴肅呼籲旺旺的主事者立即懸崖勒馬,停止所有不符媒體經營者應有作為的動作,否則我們將有第二波行動,以維護媒體產業健康的經營環境與媒體工作者應有的職業尊嚴。

The News Media is not the tool of bosses!
-A petition of News Workers to the Executives of the Want Want Group

The change in management of the China Times Group has sparked widespread concern in Taiwan society, especially since its new owner, the Want Want Business Group, has used controversial methods to counterattack a resolution by the official National Communications Council and critical commentators.
As members of the news media, we share a deep concern over the impact and influence of this case on our society and its grave implications for the environment in the new media industry which we serve.
The signatories of this petition do not necessary fully agree either with the resolution adopted by the NCC or with the criticisms levelled by outside commentators and writers toward the Want Want Group.
Nevertheless, we have seen the owners of the Want Want Group completely ignore news media professionalism and cultural identity and launch a brazen attack on dissidents and even take legal action to deal with critics.
Such actions spark in our hearts both unlimited revulsion and a profound fear over the future environment and atmosphere of news media and opinion in Taiwan.
Can it be that our working environment will denigrate to such an evil state in which there is neither dignity or safety for news workers and commentators?  
As a result, we have resolved to stand up and issue the following appeals:
First, we do not oppose the ownership or management of news media by businesses.  However, news media are not the private tools of corporate bosses but are cultural enterprises.
We therefore call on the owners of the Want Want Group which intend to manage the China Times media group to refrain from the use of advertisements to engage in ``public trials`` of people with different views or to use legal confirmation letters as a means of intimidation.
Second, we do not oppose the right of news media companies to defend their own rights. However, news media are not the private tools of corporate bosses but are the public tools of society.
We therefore call on the owners of the Want Want Group which intend to manage the China Times news media group to cease ignoring the obligation to provide balanced and fair reporting and refrain from treating the minimum standards for the fair expression of opinion as trash.
Third, we do not oppose the concept of media business operation in a free market. However, news media are not the private tools of corporate bosses and are not a commodity. The dignity and professional autonomy of news media employees cannot be sacrificed and news workers cannot be treated as sales personnel or given orders on what news to report or what to write.
Indeed, it is not only news or broadcast workers outside the China Times Group that are concerned over these developments. Many colleagues in the China Times Group have also expressed their deep concern and anxiety but are merely prevented by their positions from openly manifesting their anxiety.
We therefore solemnly call on the owners of the Want Want Group to pull back from the brink of this precipice and cease all actions not in accordance with the proper operation of news media or else we will launch a second wave of actions to uphold the health of the news media industry business environment and the rightful dignity of news media workers.
