Abstract
The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) has clarified some characteristics of what is to be considered as ‘responsible journalism’ and it has explained the reasons for limiting the right to freedom of expression and journalistic reporting at the occasion of a series of news stories covering an incident of a police officer who fell out of a moving trolleybus while on his way to work. The ECtHR found that some part of the reporting on TV by an Ukrainian broadcasting company failed to act in line with the tenets of responsible journalism, while other parts of the TV-coverage of the incident did not justify an interference with the broadcasters’ right to freedom of expression as guaranteed by Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).
