As UN Fails On Ukraine Its UN Correspondents Association Says Do Not Photograph Us

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

UN GATE / SDNY, April 6 – The United Nations has become so corrupt and controlling in the era of Secretary General Antonio Guterres, who has thrown Inner City Press out for reporting on his finance and ties to Chinese bribery firm CEFC China Energy, that a new low has been hit.  

In April 2022, nine months after the United Nations Correspondents Association executive committee members did not offer any response to a letter from pro bono US law firm Quinn Emanuel asking that they engage to end the UN's censorship of Press, UNCA sent out this:

"Dear colleagues,  During what is no doubt a strenuous time for journalists at the UN, the UNCA Executive Committee wishes to take this occasion to remind press colleagues of the importance of being mindful of each other's space, time and privacy when reporting at the UN building.  In this light, we remind all that the Media Access Guidelines require UN accredited media to act in accordance with "established journalism ethics and standards."  These state that members of the media are "expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner in their interaction with other members of the UN press corps, UN officials, and diplomats. Journalists shall have due regard to the dignity, privacy and integrity of all individuals" 

For photographers and videographers in the briefing room, at stakeouts and other areas where journalists are present, you are kindly requested to refrain from zeroing-in on another media member’s notes and devices. You are also requested not to take any close ups when the journalist is NOT asking a question unless you have received prior permission from the individual.   Thank you all for your cooperation in keeping our working conditions smooth and fair.  All the best,  Valeria Robecco President, United Nations Correspondents Association."  

Don't take photographs of supposed newspeople in public places? This is pathetic.
