The news media provides a record of the news and acts as a representative of the people. In a democracy, citizens rely on a free press that is not controlled or influenced by one group or by the government. This allows the media to be critical without punishment and offer reliable information to the public This book uses real-world examples to explain freedom of the press and censorship, who controls the press, and what makes good, reliable journalism.
