“ 
In any democratic country, media freedom is equated with freedom oexpression. This freedom would normally be enshrined in the national constitution as a right, not a privilege. Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that ‘Everyone has the right tofreedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart informationand ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers
’.”
