World Press Freedom Day – May 3, 2021

UNESCO
World Press Freedom Day theme “Information as a Public Good”
In the midst of a pandemic, the media could be a force for good, truth and actually help save lives. Do you think they’ve done that?

We’ve certainly seen some really really bad examples of what that freedom entails. But some reporters have stood up for their traditions and practice. They’ve been in the trenches with protestors, in war theatres, and gone to jail to tell an important story.
Sure there are those who make the field look bad. But today, let’s ask media what it takes to be a good journalist. Let’s ask ourselves what we should be looking for from them.
