Kristine Vardanyan, a former Community Connections alumna and an experienced journalist, was invited to conduct the training. When discussing the importance of journalist ethics she stated how an inappropriate comment made by a journalist can cause serious problems. The participants watched videos developed by other local TV channels and identified deficiencies which were made due to the low awareness and lack of professional ethics of some journalists
