World Press Freedom Day being observed today

World Press Freedom Day is being observed today. This day is celebrated on the 3rd of May every year. This year’s World Press Freedom Day theme “Information as a Public Good” serves as a call to affirm the importance of cherishing information as a public good.

In his message, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres urged all governments to do everything in their power to support a free, independent and diverse media.  He said, in many countries, journalists and media workers face censorship, abuse, harassment,  detention and even death simply for doing their jobs.
