Inter Mirifica 19

From the bishops, a request of the pope:

In fulfilling his supreme pastoral charge with respect to the media of social communication, the Sovereign Pontiff has at hand a special office of the Holy See. Moreover, the Fathers of the Council, freely acceding to the wish of the “Secretariat for the Supervision of Publications and Entertainment,” reverently request that the Sovereign Pontiff extend the duties and competence of this office to include all media of social communication, including the press, and that experts from various countries be named to it, including lay(people).

Today, we have the Pontifical Council for Social Communications. That web page has a number of interesting documents going back to 1936.
