I will not question the right of press freedom, but it is a fact that freedom comes with responsibility. Freedom is important, but it is also incontrovertible that a responsible press can do more to achieve world peace in this increasingly chaotic world. What is the worth of press freedom if it does more harm that good? Press freedom can be expressed in many more ways other than by such unfortunate means. But again, how should we react?
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
