The press as the fourth estate.

"The term Fourth Estate refers to the press, both in its explicit capacity of advocacy and in its implicit ability to frame political issues"

Without a strong press, a government could do anything it wanted and no one would be none the wiser. It could become corrupt and nobody would know. It could make deals that benefit the ruling class and the public would never know.

I don't really know why I thought of that...

We now return to regular scheduled programming.
