The press and power

Something I read in the Times resonated a lot.

The stories of overmighty monarchs, overmighty executives, and overmighty prime ministers and chief whips are often told. But there is such a thing as an overmighty mass media too, and it would be a sad day when Commons Speakers felt under constant pressure to satisfy the press.

Though this issue in the UK is far removed from what’s happening here in Malaysia, it worth pondering on the subtle power the press holds-the power to shape public opinion for better or worse.
