Media Council Structure Overview Print

There are five entities in all:

The Media Foundation of Bermuda is the umbrella group and every media outlet that adopts the Code Practice becomes a member and contributes a nominal, annual fee to help meet the cost of running the Media Council.

The Media Working Group, effectively the executive committee of the Media Foundation, established the Media Council.

The Appointments Committee was established by the Media Working Group with the primary task of selecting people to sit on the Media Council.

The Executive Officer is the point person for complaints about the media from the public. If a dispute cannot be resolved directly between the complainant and the editor/news director/website manager, the Executive Officer will try to mediate.

The Media Council of Bermuda is the eight-strong panel that hears complaints against the media.
