From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Media or the 4th Estate can only inform, educate, and be the watchdog of government, business, culture in general if it is totally free to print, write, or broadcast whatever it desires to. Media can have a viewpoint and does influence the story, but it can only remain objective overall if it is not beholden to anyone or any organization. Just the government should not support any religion, it should not support any media viewpoint with tax dollars or special privileges.
