Gagged and bound?

Can we have a National Conversation – or any kind of free and open conversation – when  the press is controlled by the state?

In today’s Telegraph, Fraser Nelson makes a level-headed and compelling defence for a free press.  Killer quote: “…you can’t have a little bit of state control, any more than you can be a little bit pregnant. Either the press is free, or it must operate within parameters defined by the state.”
