A quote from Pope Francis:
"The journalist has a role of great importance, and at the same time a great responsibility. In a certain sense you write the 'first draft of history.' Times change, and the way of being a journalist changes too. Both print journalism and television are losing relevance compared to the new media of the digital world — especially among the young — but journalists, when they are professional, remain as a pillar, a fundamental element for the vitality of a free and pluralist society."
— Audience with National Council Order of Journalists, Sept. 22, 2016
