The ruling about the trustworthiness when news is summarized by reporters/the Grand Ayatollah Makarem’s answer

SHAFAQNA – The Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi answered a question about trustworthiness when news is summarized by reporters.

Question: Many speeches, declarations, interviews and similar cases have long texts; and the reporter is forced to summarize them. By summarizing, there is a possibility that the gap from the main text may happen and maybe a different impression is implied. Is this considered to be the breach of the trust?

The Grand Ayatollah Makarem: Changing the content is considered as accusation and lie; but there is no problem in summarizing or to quote from the content.
