A free press is said to be one of the foundational pillars of a democratic society. The law makers across the globe have granted so many privileges to the profession of journalism. The freedom of expression is considered to be totally different from the liberties that are conferred upon other individuals and institutions. The freedom given to a journalist is not of individualistic nature, and implies to the right of accredited print and media bodies that can express and publish their views related to any walk of life.
