Gazeta do Povo is a traditional newspaper from southern Brazil which celebrated its 102nd anniversary in February 2021, and has been standing out due to its pioneering investments in the digital media. In 2017, Gazeta became the first mainstream daily newspaper in the country to become 100% digital.
The choice to go digital came about during the natural path followed by the newspaper in order to accomplish another goal: becoming a source of information for Brazilians in any part of the country. And more than that, to be a source with clear values that resonate with most of our society.
The mission of Gazeta do Povo is: “To encourage in each one the desire to be better and contribute for the good of society.”
Therefore, the newspaper wishes to be part of a deep change in the lives of its readers, a journey that begins with the understanding of how important each one is to our society.
In order to guide its journalistic work, Gazeta published a few years ago its set of convictions. They are the fruit of a profound reflection on the human being and the challenges of our time. We set out from the principle of human dignity in order to disclose our views on several topics, among them the defense of life, family, marriage and free enterprise.
For Gazeta, the readers are the ones who have in their hands the power to make their community grow – beginning with self-knowledge, and the notion that there are values that, if preserved, help to draw the best there is within a human being.
This is why we usually say we make a different kind of journalism, which we invite everyone to know.
Our convictions are available in this link. Have a good read!
The defense of life from conception
An unborn child is the most defenseless and innocent of human beings, and for this reason, it needs a more emphatic protection because it is incapable of enforcing its rights by itself
Ethics and the pursuit of excellence
Ethics are the answer to the question “what should I be?” And the answer is simple, but profound: the individual has a calling to be the best he can be.
The value of family
There is an environment where each one is loved for what they are, independently of their utility or their attributes. This environment is the family
The principle of subsidiarity: less state and more citizen
Subsidiarity empowers people and communities, removing the notion that the citizen is a passive being waiting for the blessings granted by the state
The value of democracy
Democracy is a unique form of government that permits its citizens to develop their potencial to the maximum.
