In a democracy, news is the essential public service. Government by the people cannot function without it. Nobody has put this better than Thomas Jefferson. In 1787, he wrote:

“The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them.”

The job of the news is to keep everyone informed – to enable us to be better citizens, equipped with what we
need to know.

How has that task changed in the internet age? For the better, overwhelmingly.
