As a media outlet, we particularly comply with the provisions of Inter Mirificia, the decree on the media of social communications, which says in part:

In society men have a right to information, in accord with the circumstances in each case, about matters concerning individuals or the community. The proper exercise of this right demands, however, that the news itself that is communicated should always be true and complete, within the bounds of justice and charity. In addition, the manner in which the news is communicated should be proper and decent.
