Drawing attention to the fact that observing the incidents by looking for an answer to the question “Why?” is one of the key provision, Prof. Dr. Youngblood gave an example of looking at Syrian refugees only from a humanistic point of view. Stating that peace journalism also means doing journalism by respecting every opinion and culture, Prof. Dr. Youngblood wanted people to stay away from the news which involves propaganda or dictates an opinion.
