Last Friday, January 28, Pope Francis received in audience the members of the International Consortium of Catholic Media, of which Blanquerna is a member. Among those in attendance, whom the Holy Father greeted, was Dra. Miriam Díez Bosch, director of the Blanquerna Observatory on Media, Religion and Culture; Dra. Alba Sabaté, Deputy Director of the Observatory, and Sílvia Vehí, an alumni of the Degree in Journalism and Corporate Communication and a student of the Master’s in Audiovisual Executive Production PROA.
In recent months, the Consortium has promoted the https://catholic-factchecking.com/ portal, with the aim of providing the Catholic media with verified information on COVID-19 vaccines. The Blanquerna Observatory has participated with a report on the media coverage of the COVID-19 vaccine. The project has received funding from the Google News Initiative.
