Do we have a free press?
One of the cornerstones of a free society is freedom of the press. We at LFNP firmly believe that. A free press is one that can keep a check on the government’s overreaching powers and infringements on civil rights.
The problem is, what we call “the press” or “journalism” today isn’t even close; it’s a mouthpiece for one particular side of the political spectrum with the goal of furthering its agenda and expanding its power.
For those who are on the whole #journalismmatters kick in the era of Trump, we have some insights for you in this episode.
