Problem

Restrictions on direct news coverage of parliamentary affairs

Other Names:
Restriction on press coverage of parliamentary affairs
Nature:
Broadcasting media are not allowed to cover parliamentary proceedings directly in most countries. Facilities for the press may be provided, but journalists may be prevailed upon to keep their views as neutral as possible. The result of such restrictions may be alienation, apathy and ignorance, a lack of participation or interest in politics, the tightening of government control, and the maintenance of government secrecy.
