“My point is a general forecast that in these days of global economic crisis people become genuinely interested in what is happening in the world – both far and near – feeding a hunger to know and to understand how all these events relate to their own life situation. Such a hunger renders support to quality journalism: a compelling need for reliable information on economy, environment and society. […] I see on the horizon a renaissance for good old quality journalism.”
