Truth in Media

  • PDF
“The positive development of the media at the service of the common good is a responsibility of each and every one,. Because of the close connections the media have with economics, politics and culture, there is required a management system capable of safeguarding the centrality and dignity of the person, the primacy of the family as the basic unit of society and the proper relationship among them.”
-Pope John Paul II in his apostolic letter, "The Rapid Development," February 2005 
 
Introduction
The following are the words of Pope john Paul II: 
“One must remember that the proper aim and task of social communications is service to the truth and its defence.’ It means that information in the media should be presented in an objective and reliable way, avoiding manipulation and the attitude that is corruptible towards the truth.”
