This page is definite NPOV. Needs to be addressed with more balanced language. Njerseyguy 04:07, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Can you be specific about what you think is POV? Otherwise I think the tag should be removed since neither you nor anyone else has provided examples of specific problems, or solutions.--Tirpse77 (talk) 00:57, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

For example:

"However, it seems that IPS has played a significant part in shaping the modern media and their news. Some of its structural innovations have been adopted by other international media organizations, most notably regarding the employment of local journalists for the coverage of developing countries. Furthermore, IPS claims to have led the way to a particular style of news (by demonstrating that in-depth analysis is as much part of the news as immediate coverage of the "facts”) and to raising awareness about less "newsworthy" topics, such as poverty or the environment."

Somebody has got to be kidding?

Assuming that the info is verifiable from the sources provided, that is easy to clean up. Changing the "it seems that" to "According to so-and-so" should do it. I assume that the last sentence is an issue for you, but as it is simply forthrightly stating a claim (assuming verifiability) by IPS, there is no problem. 68.73.114.58 (talk) 12:14, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Mediascape[edit]

"The agency has established a niche in the international mediascape" – It appears to me that the author of that sentence used the term "mediascape" to simply mean "media landscape", but the way "mediascape" is used in this (Inter Press Service) article and sentence seems at odds with what the mediascape article currently says on its subject. 31.18.248.254 (talk) 15:09, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
