The newspaper makes the case that free press is important for ensuring democracy. This article discusses the “shift from traditional print to digital media”, which has resulted in a decline of the popularity of publishing newspapers.
The free press is a cornerstone of a democracy. It’s the one institution that allows citizens to hold their government accountable, and it’s essential to keeping the public informed of important news. Unfortunately, there are indications that the free press is under attack in America. The age of the free press is coming to an end, and it’s time for us to fight for it. There have been numerous attempts to restrict freedom of the press in America over the past few years. In 2013, President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which allowed for the indefinite detention of journalists without charge or trial
How the Age is Different
The Age is a free press. We’re not beholden to advertisers or political interests, and our journalism is fearless. That’s why we’re the only media outlet in Australia with a perfect five-star rating from review site ReadWriteWeb.com. We believe that journalism is about holding people and institutions accountable, and we’ll always fight for the truth. We’ll keep reporting on corruption, cronyism and the misuse of taxpayer money, no matter how hard they try to shut us down. Thank you for reading The Age. We hope you continue to support us as we work to make Australia a better place for all Australians.
Impact of the Age on Media
No matter how you slice it, the internet has had a profound and pervasive impact on the way we consume information. For one, fake news is rampant on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
As we enter an era where more and more media is controlled by a small handful of large corporations, it is more important than ever that we protect our right to free speech. It is also vitally important that we teach our children the importance of a free press and freedom of expression, because these are values that will serve them well in the future.
