Freedom of the press is crucial for a healthy democracy, but it’s often challenged by government censorship, corporate interests, and technological limitations. Democracy can thrive not only under the vigilant eye of its Legislature, but also under the care and guidance of public opinion and the press is par excellence, the vehicle through which opinion can become articulate. Press freedom ensures accountability, transparency, and the dissemination of diverse viewpoints. However, it can be compromised by misinformation, propaganda, and legal constraints in some regions. Balancing it with responsibility and ethical journalism is essential for its preservation.
