Free and independent media are essential to a democracy. The opportunity to engage in dialogue and exchange information, arguments and opinions is crucial for the proper functioning of Switzerland’s direct democracy. At the same time, media perform a monitoring function in society by informing the public and taking responsibility for transparent reporting on powerful individuals and institutions. Even the knowledge that a strong and independent media exists helps to maintain order in society.
