World Press Freedom Day
Read More

Journalists play a major role in the promotion and protection of democracy and our unalienable rights, and they must be able to do their jobs freely. Only truth and transparency can guarantee freedom.
– Senator John McCain

Each year, May 3 is recognized as World Press Freedom Day by the United Nations. It is an opportunity to celebrate the fundamental principles of press freedom, assess the state of press freedom throughout the world, defend the media from attacks on their independence, and pay tribute to journalists who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
Check out the video above to watch former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright discuss the importance of press freedom in a democracy.
