Freedom of the Press: At all times, uphold and defend the principle of media freedom, the right of freedom of expression, and the right of the public to be informed. 

  • Media freedom is the right of journalists to report freely on the news without interference from the government or other powerful interests. It is essential for the media to be able to investigate and report on wrongdoing, even if it is embarrassing or inconvenient for those in power.
  • Freedom of expression is the right of individuals to express their thoughts and opinions without fear of censorship or reprisal. It includes the right to speak freely, write freely, and publish freely. Freedom of expression is essential for a vibrant and open society.
  • The right of the public to be informed is the right of citizens to have access to information about the world around them, including information about their government and other powerful institutions. It is essential for citizens to be able to make informed decisions about their lives and their communities.
