The International Media Council of the Next Century Foundation is convinced that the honesty or dishonesty of media affects the mental health of the world.

It is a cliché that the price of this freedom must be continual vigilance – in particular vigilance to identify and expose the encouragement of malice, war and the incident of hate speech and image.
