Why Journalism Matters

Powerful stories submitted from news organizations around the world showcasing the power of journalism to make a difference.

Visit the news page for the latest stories that are making a difference from around the world.

“As the world around us grows more complex and crisis ridden, audiences seek out credible voices to help them make sense of developments. This is how professional newsrooms make a difference. They interpret events and help people join the dots, adding perspective and context. World News Day is a timely reminder of why good journalism matters.”

“Undoubtedly, journalism matters to every citizen of the world. Without facts, freedom and democracy can fail. Journalism at its best can — and does — make a difference in the lives of individuals, our communities, our countries, and the future of our planet. This year, on World News Day 2022, we celebrate the power of fact-based journalism to make a difference.”
