Editorial independence

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Editorial independence is the absence of external control or influence on journalists, authors, or media organisations in general. It is tested, for instance, if a newspaper runs articles that may be unpopular with its advertising clientele or critical of its commercial owners or the state. The term is mostly used to denote media independence, and the freedom of the press.

"The media has increasingly grown to rely on automated decision-making to produce and distribute news. This trend challenges our understanding of editorial independence ..."[1]
