I am a Founding Member and current executive director of the Fourth Estate; and a complete supporter of the organization's vital public mission. I am loath to consider what society would look like in the abscence of the free press.
A strong, vibrant and resilient press is aboolutely critical to societies in which the powerful must be held accountable to the people. Only in their role as protector and watchdog can members of the Fourth estate investigate and report on government wrongdoing.
