Read the following passage and answer the questions given in Q. Nos. 46 to 50 :
There is a constant tension of one degree or another between the public's demand for truthful, accurate and relevant information and a government's interest in controlling, manipulating and in some cases suppressing news or transforming it altogether for its own purposes into propaganda. Knowledge is power and power is what governments are all about. This basic political fact does not make governments inherently evil, but it does mean that we need to be mindful about how their interests can sometimes differ from those of the public's with respect to the gathering, presentation and use of information provided by the news. If we are to be responsible citizens, we must realistically expect there to be occasional conflicts, disputes and sparring between these opposed interests. People desiring to be politically free, however they may define this concept themselves, must be especially on the look out for any systematic degrading of the ability of reporters to practise their profession freely. This means in particular without interference by the government, except in the most urgent circumstances in which the security of the society a s a whole is seriously challenged and even only then with appropriate oversight. The important point is that, given the importance of a free press to a free society, any interference in the professional activity
[

P.T.O.

of journalists is to be tolerated only under the most extre~ne circumstances and then only for a specified period of time. All citizens who aspire to freedom or want their society to remain free should, if this is their goal, be aware of the problems that can result from political and judicial bodies setting a bad precedent in limiting freedom of the press. For it is in this way that the moral right of a free press can be incrementally degraded step-by-step in an accelerating slippery slope until the government begins to exert a n undue influence over its practices. A government is not the only source of threat to a free press. In principle, there is a threat from any powerful institution with a stake in news reporting. The government shirks a n essential moral responsibility if it looks the other way when organised crime, religious fanatics or other specialised interest groups harass news reporters and make it difficult or even impossible for them to do their job.
