Some reporters fall victims to the sin of dramatization of old scandals; another grave sin in their job is creating and spreading fake news to cause stir among the public. Pope Francis said that during his speech before the Catholic media.

‘You shouldn’t fall into the ‘sins of communication:’ disinformation, or giving just one side, calumny that is sensationalised, or defamation, looking for things that are old news and have been dealt with and bringing them to light today'. He called those actions a 'grave sin that hurts the heart of the journalist and hurts others’, the outlet quoted the Pope as saying.
