World Press Freedom Day on 3 May highlights the importance of freedom of the press, and reminds governments to uphold their citizens’ right to freedom of expression enshrined under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It’s also a chance for us to reflect on the damage caused to individuals when freedom of the press is denied.Who said that freedom of the press was owning one? You often get that feeling in Western Australia where there is a virtual monopoly of print media.
Hopefully where there is "free" internet, that is becoming less of the case. Little comfort for the Chinese or the Tibetans at the moment.
