Abstract

It is a fact that all modern governments operate within the unflinching gaze of the media, and that politicians often have more adversarial than friendly relationships with journalists. Charlie Beckett writes that while the media should strive to me more accountable to the public, the rise of more open systems of information like the internet puts a much greater onus on government to be more honest and transparent with the public.
