  • Nepali press under Emergency: A survey of the First Six Months is an effort by the Recent for investigative Journalism to understand our capability as journalists to adequately inform our audience on the conflict that is ravaging the country. The analysis is based on what the mainstream press- limited to the Nepali-language broadsheet dailies here- reported and wrote about during the first six months of the emergency starting 26 November 2001. It attempts to gauge the effectiveness of press coverage in terms of accuracy, fairness and balance in order to assess whether the newspapers with the widest reach have or have not helped increase our understanding of the crisis. Well-informed decisions can result only from sound understanding. This is why the quality of media coverage is vital for conflict resolution and peace-making which we believe is what every Nepali wants. The media can aid the process through fair, impartial and wholesome coverage.
