Vatican News reported on 18 May 2019, that Pope francis urged to free journalism in his meeting with 400 journalist of the Foreign Press Association of Italy, in the World Communication Day.
Pope said: “I therefore urge you to work according to truth and justice, so that communication is truly an instrument for building, not for destroying; for meeting, not for clashing; for dialoguing, not for monologizing; for orienting, not for disorienting; for understanding, not for misunderstanding; for walking in peace, not for sowing hatred; for giving a voice to those who have no voice, not for being a megaphone to those who shout louder,”
He added: “Who is talking about the Rohingya today? Who is talking about the Yazidi today? They have been forgotten and they continue to suffer,”
