Promote the need for sincere information for a democracy based on trust

Misinformation, a plea for the reform of information

Heinderyckx, François
01/01/2003

“Politicians and media institutions, beyond all reason, share the heavy responsibility of reducing citizens’ exposure to “the political question”. This tendency originates from the supposed (and gradually proven) aversion of a large part of the public to political issues. Politicians, in order to spare their electorate; the media, in order to spare their audiences, have been led, gradually and insidiously, to marginalize the channels by which political information is communicated to the “general public”. [...] We must encourage information by promoting the pleasure of knowing, and above all the pleasure of understanding.”
