Pope: Journalists Are “Protectors of News”

In a message on World Communications Day, Pope Francis released "Fake News and Journalism of Peace," a missive denouncing the spread of fake news and lauding journalists as "the protectors of news." Said the Pontiff: "In today’s world, theirs is, in every sense, not just a job; it is a mission." He called for "a journalism that is truthful and opposed to falsehoods, rhetorical slogans, and sensational headlines. A journalism created by people for people, one that is at the service of all, especially those – and they are the majority in our world – who have no voice."
