“[Press] freedom is also being undermined by a passive audience who looks to media that is in alignment with their own political sensibilities. An audience’s inability to listen to and understand the other side leads simply to an echo chamber of like-minded voices. Even more damaging is people are often accepting whatever they see online as fact. Mistaken facts, stories, and captions designed to misinform are becoming ever more the norm. We remain in danger to our own ignorance of being misled and taken down a path where the freedom of the press is no longer recognized as being an essential right for all.” Ron Haviv and others • VII
