Message for the 52nd World Day of Communications


The truth will set you free” (Jn 8:32): Fake News and Journalism for Peace: this is the theme of the 52nd World Day of Communications, which will be celebrated on 13 May 2018. In his Message, the Pope reflects on the need for correct information that rejects fake news and then goes on to analyze the causes, logic and consequences of disinformation in the media. He strongly advocates a competent and professionally-responsible journalism that seeks to present the truth–a journalism of peace that helps human beings understand one another.
