A free (non-government controlled) press, or media in general, must remain somewhat objective. Objective journalism promotes making journalism democratic. The connection between objective journalism and democracy, freedom and peace is that they use the truth resources.

There is such thing as "violence and  democracy" in journalism. Something is either logic or illogical. Our examples are of several kinds of reasoning leading to conclusions, but not necessarily illogical.

Therefore, there is a consistency between the accumulation of  healthy journalism and the promotion of an attractive and objective journalism. It is true, violence harms journalism. Unfortunately, continued violence will deteriorate the media in spite of the best efforts of people to make the nation and life safer. So, Journalism's role to defend the democracy, human rights and peace can achieve some good results for the people.

Some media sends lots of  messages and it helps to counteract the violence, but there is no substitute for eliminating the violence. Why would it be important for us to launch such a healthy democratic and peace journalism? The reason is a simple one. We are being used by freedom which we believe we do understand well.

Simple people want a healthy news, reports and an articles for existence. Journalists must think that publishing an article or interview on democracy, human rights and peace is promoting freedom. Journalism has to play a crucial role in a situation. Journalism's role needs in the dissemination of correct and fact-based news.

Journalists must write for fact because we want the healthy growth of peacejournalism, which has been given a great degree of freedom and democracy.

Is there anything wrong with fighting violence through journalism or media? Of course not. We as a believer in democracy who is struggling to understand peace, security and justice in the world should know that in the opinion of many, our current plans seem to carry such a taint or curse. However, we should write our own conscience and beliefs. We must proceed, that we are going to do everything in our power to defeat the violence and terrorism.

Therefore, what's the difference between the healthy journalism and mediaforfreejournalism? Is it a long division of journey. Is it a rearranging of the people up in forgiveness? Journalism must also deal with the human security.

Recently, journalism has been giving unjustified publicity. We as a journalists must condemn the violence, terrorism  and promote human rights. Thus, the media has to be very alert and not let itself be used by any individual or group. The media, in fact, must be concerned with developing security and democracy.

So we hope that  journalism will improve democracy and peace  because the people deserve a more peaceful and prosperous life.
