▶ Who is the Press and is it Free? – YouTube.

For the press to be anything it has to for one be privately owned so it serves as a real check on government. Rather than as a tool of government but also actual journalists have to have the freedom to do their jobs. And not be harassed by government because they report stories that make government look bad. Which is why journalists shield laws are important to prevent government from censoring media just because they don’t like what is being reported.
