Quote of the day, May 4

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein (2015)

“Quality journalism enables citizens to make informed decisions about their society’s development. It also works to expose injustice, corruption, and the abuse of power. Freedom of expression and press freedom are not luxury attributes that can wait until sustainable development has been achieved—it is an enabler for the enjoyment of all human rights and, therefore, vital to good governance and the rule of law.”
