Only those with something to fear from it.
One has to smile when one reads Blair whining that the press has caused a "loss of trust between politicians and media". Yeah, it's all the Sun's fault. Nothing to do with your repeatedly lying to the press about Iraq and other issues.
We don't trust you because you're shit; you lie, you cheat, you serve corporations and fuck us over. If the papers are out to get you, we generally think you deserve it. We delight in your discomfiture.
One laughs at Blair's talk of "accountability". He means control, of course. But having a press that the government cannot control is a good thing. It goes a very small way to keeping the bastards honest.
