How Free is the Press Summary
How free is the press was written by Dorothy L. Sayers. She was born in 1893 in England. She was one of the first women to graduate from Oxford University. In this essay she writes with clarity of thought to make a strong case against misreporting by the press or against the misuse of the freedom of the press. According to Sayers without a free press we can not imagine of free people. She pointed out that freedom of press is important feature of a democratic society. And the press is restricted in time of war. A free press can attack government policies and can expose corruptions. But press is misused. She Says the press is not as free as it should be. Actually the press is chiefly controlled by two factors the advertisers and the owner of the press. No newspapers dares to go against them. Sometimes a press does not express the public opinion and it misrepresents the fact. At last she says that the danger to the freedom of the press does not come from the government. It comes from within the press.
