Review of UK and world papers and coverage of UK and global journalism stories for Friday 26th May 2023
Journalism is the first draft of history and these daily reports seek to provide an online briefing of the history of journalism for each day featured.
The Chartered Institute of Journalists remembers all the professional journalists and media workers murdered and killed while doing their work this year in all parts of the world and remember the immense sacrifice of those who gave their lives to the profession in the past. We send our condolences to their families, friends and professional colleagues.
We pray for the repose of the soul of The Revd Canon John Oates, Rector of #StBrides 1984–2000, who has died aged 93 after a short illness. We remember his beloved late wife, his family & friends, and give thanks for his service and dedication to the church. May he rest in peace.
