Chesterton wrote about reform of the press - he was a journalist himself - many times. This one interested me because of the quote about being "loudly and violently saintly" and the recommendation about sending editors who print falsehoods to prison. "Limericks and Counsels of Perfection," from his book All Things Considered, published in 1908. Yes, that is where the NPR title comes from.
One can see both similarities and differences in the press of his time and ours, making it worthy of your time.
BTW, the cause for his canonisation has not been opened, as his local bishop did not recommend it in 2019. His successor could reopen the case.
