A free press is fundamental to a democratic society. It seeks out and circulates news, information, ideas, comment and opinion and holds those in authority to account. The press provides the platform for a multiplicity of voices to be heard. At national, regional and local level, it is the public’s watchdog, activist and guardian as well as educator, entertainer and contemporary chronicler. Apparently dictators are afraid of such a public watchdog, and so is UNWTO Secretary General Zurab Pololikashvili. Government News – eTurboNews | Trends | Travel News
