The Limitations of Freedom and Responsibility of the Kuwaiti Press from the Perspective of the Kuwaiti Journalists and Politicians: "A Comparative Study" (in Arabic)

Auther : Menawer Alrajehi

This research aims at measuring the level of freedom available to the Kuwaiti newspapers as recounted by Kuwaiti journalists, members of the Kuwaiti National Assembly and politicians. It also aims at studying the differences among their attitudes towards the freedom available to the Kuwaiti newspapers and also their responsibilities for the community and their commitment to the professional and moral responsibility. In order to achieve these targets, the researcher depended on the survey methodology using a questionnaire, applying it on a subject of (221) Kuwaiti journalists and (68) members of the Kuwaiti National Assembly and politicians.
    The findings of this research show that there are significant differences between the visions and attitudes of both Kuwaiti journalists and politicians towards the concepts of freedom and responsibility in Kuwaiti journalism, as well as the related variables such as: the freedom of speech, the threats which the journalists face, how abide are the Kuwaiti newspapers to responsibility towards the community, and so on. The findings also indicated that there are significant differences in many points between the members of the Kuwaiti National Assembly politicians (who represent the main factor in press legislations) from a side, and the journalists themselves from the other side, considering the status of journalism actions and what should be, and this difference sometimes reflects a state of conflict, while in some other cases, it reflects a state of satisfaction and accord between both parties. It is also noted that there are high positive attitudes from the politicians towards the idea of press freedom but they are more conserved regarding freedom in general and the performance of the Kuwaiti journalists and journalism in particular.
