Journalism plays a vital role for society, bringing verifiable news and informed comment to the public.In-depth and fact-checked news is being overshadowed by shared media content that is all too often far from this standard.Whose duty is it to strengthen the media's potential to foster a better future for all?What happens to journalists and to journalism is a symbol of how society respects the fundamental freedoms of expression and access to information.It affects us all when press freedom is curbed by censorship or political interference, or is contaminated by manipulation and made-up content.With this in mind, the global theme of this year's World Press Freedom Day is Critical Minds for Critical Times: Media's role in advancing peaceful, just and inclusive societies.
