Reporting the facts is one of the main responsibilities of journalism. To prohibit this or block it in any way is unconstitutional. My suspicion is the Trump administration will try to skew the facts and in some cases even forbid the release of facts so to protect the administration from the truth.
Citizens of a country need to be informed. It is essential that facts be reported, even if this is not desirable based on opinion by leaders of a country. Facts should be reported in a manner that informs and educates citizens to make decisions in the daily lives, work habits, spending and choosing leaders for their nation.
Journalists and reporters should always make an honest attempt to report the facts, even if doing so makes government leaders unhappy. Citizens have the right to know what is going on--know what their government is up to. It is up to reporters to tell the citizenry what is going on.
Yes, it is important to report the facts even if the leaders of the country try to silence the press. That is the very foundation of a free press. They are in place not just to inform the public but to keep leaders honest. A failure to report facts in the face of efforts to silence a reporter is unacceptable.
