A Free Press is Essential
It is kind of extraordinary to see an ad on CNN telling people to watch MSNBC and vice versa, but a free society depends on an educated public. Today more than ever, the free press is essential. Here is an ad that ran on World Press Freedom Day (May 3) with custom versions running in 36 media outlets, to encourage people to check out a wide variety of trusted news outlets, not just one. “Read More. Listen More. Understand More. It all starts with a free press,” reads the final line. This ad, initiated by UNESCO to honor 25 years of World Press Freedom Day, was created by Droga5 agency.
