“Content that is produced in a rigorous and honest manner is increasingly being subjected to unfair competition from sponsored content, propaganda, and rumors,” says RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire. “We cannot remain passive in the face of this threat to the honesty of the public debate and, by extension, to democracy. Reporters Without Borders is taking concrete steps to promote journalistic freedom, independence, and pluralism.”
2018 marks the 25th celebration of World Press Freedom Day. The global theme this year is Keeping Power in Check: Media, Justice and The Rule of Law.
