    Democracy and the Nobel Peace Prize are connected because the Nobel peace prize is awarded to anyone who fights for rights and have their say in matters. Democracy is when people have a say in a public election for President, MP, etc. They are similar because they both describe how people can have a say in anything that affects our world, how they live or how we cope. However, democracy is not always seen. The Nobel Peace Prize allows us to recognise our rights.

      I have another perspective. I think that Freedom of press and Independence are connected because you can not be free even in your thoughts if you are not independent. Imagine that your child feels independent at home, he could do whatever he wants, so he is free to tell you what he thinks of. This child is a member in society, if he raised up on this way, independence could be a normal action in his life. Independent person can speak freely about problems, trying to find solutions, he is sensitive to conflicts trying to change because he is free to say and act. But countries which are not independent could suffer in silent pain, die in mute because they are deprived of their right to speak, tell, vote and change, really they are deprived of their right of freedom of press.

    Freedom of the press and the truth are linked because press freedom is that journalists have the freedom to report the truth. If they have this freedom, they will be able to publish the truth.By my words I mean that freedom of the press is the main reason for spreading the truth.

    Freedom of the press and truth are connected because when a journalist can get the freedom to speak without any fear of any organization or any political leader that time they can give the people truth about any incident or any event. the journalists can work with fresh mind . lastly freedom of press ensures the proper law as truth is above all law.

    I think that freedom of the press is associated with strength because press freedom allows journalists to express their opinions and indicates the necessity of observing the right to exercise freedom through all media. It is called bold, and not all people have the courage and strength to express their opinions. In the past, I was unable to express an opinion and I was ashamed of this, but I had a problem that made me regret this thing and since then I am trying to overcome this problem and to have the courage and strength so I advise those who suffer It is from this thing that they reform themselves, because they will regret the most, because their opinions may be a reason for solving many problems.

      I think Freedom of the press and power are related. Many organizations, including the government, can benefit from hiding the truth. One of the main roles of the free press is to act as a guard dog of power. The media is a bridge between humans and powerful beings. If the press is devoted to power rather than freedom, it is just an extension of that power. Without freedom of the press, journalists trying to tell the truth when threatening the nation are not protected by law. It makes censorship and oppression inevitable. Even if a nation sets a goal of being more truthful and transparent, there is always an agenda to be fulfilled. With regard to corruption and human rights abuses, a free press is essential to reveal abuse of power.

      I have another view. I believe that freedom of the press and democracy are linked, because I believe that the strong press is the fourth authority in the state, as it provides opinions and information of interest to all people. Also, freedom of the press is the main wheel in the democratic system. All authorities must respect the rights and opinions of all people, and all members of society have the right to express their opinions.

    On May 3 of each year, the world celebrates World Press Freedom Day, in order to assess the state of press freedom around the world and to defend the media from the infringement of its independence in order to strengthen journalism and improve transparency and enabling capabilities.
    I think freedom of the press is linked to democracy.
    I believe that freedom of the press is the spirit of democratic thought practiced by modern democratic peoples, because it is the voice of what circulates in the thoughts of the people and their groups, because it is linked to a strong bond between the people and its various institutions, and in my opinion it is a disclosure of what lies in the human soul, writing and publishing about it..
    Do you want democracy? I will preserve the freedom of the press and keep it active.
    Journalism keeps the public informed, allows diverse voices to be heard, and holds leaders accountable.
    In the United States, the press is sometimes called the fourth branch of government. While there are only three branches of government from a legal point of view: executive, legislative and judicial, this phrase emphasizes the role played by the media in monitoring government actions and holding leaders accountable.
    One of the most important functions of journalism is to help citizens understand the often complex processes of government, and I believe informing people of how decisions made at the highest levels will affect them...
    Journalism in my opinion allows people to express their views and hear different opinions from those in power. Reporting the views of opposition leaders and publishing editorials critical of government actions allow for a diversity of voices.
    Leaders committed to democracy may not like their policies to be publicly challenged, but they uphold the right of the press to do so...💜

    identify a case of communication between the press and democracy, and they are closely related, because the press and democracy are two sides of the same coin! It is impossible to separate them. I believe that without a free press capable of fulfilling its mission and critical role, the society cannot be democratic and free ... and the state in which there is a free press cannot be considered a non-democratic state ...!!! And because the freedom of the press is the guarantee of the freedom of the homeland and the citizen.**.Freedom of speech is the first premise of democracy*** After all, I find that there is a close and intertwined relationship. Whenever there is a democratic life and a democratic system, there is a free and strong press and an advanced democratic society..I note that in Democratic System Freedom of the press is protected, respected and recognized at all levels and it has a goal in exercising its rights guaranteed by the constitution without state interference....

    Freedom of the press and safety is linked because when the journalist enjoys the freedom to convey the truth, he will be endangered or injured by those he will speak about. At this moment, the government must intervene to protect and support journalists only and not interfere in their work because every journalist is responsible for his work, and the arrest and defense of people who do things that violate the law A fine and the job of the journalist and the government will be reliable.

      I think PRESS FREEDOM and SAFETY are related, but in some countries, there is so low that the risk of being attacked as soon as journalists work to spread the truth or ask influential people. Will increase. Responsible for pulling. A free press is a medium for presenting the truth to people. I think the biggest metaphor for this relationship is riding quicksand. A world without facts means a world without trust. the free press is the truth and transparency of the news, and the truth requires courage, regardless of risk.

    Freedom of the press is linked to the concept of strength and courage in revealing facts and standing against violations with evidence and proof. The press is the mirror of the truth, and here he does not mean physical force, but rather the power to prove the facts and deliver the voice of truth to those concerned, the ability to convince everyone of the point of view, strength with patience, creativity, problem solving and analysis of ideas

    In my opinion, the independence and freedom of the journalist are linked to each other because the free journalist is considered independent and his decisions are free from external control. For example, the journalist’s job is to deliver sound and correct news and does not fall under any external control because he adheres to certain conditions and no one can control his work as long as he applies the law of his work, so the journalist is independent in his decisions

    I think freedom of the press and truth are very much interconnected. Where there is a freedom of press, there is truth. People get the true news about different facts. The government can't force the press to publish false news or to hide some important news. Rather as the press enjoys freedom, government try to be accountable and transparent. Moreover, Government can't hide any false news

    Democracy and freedom of the press are connected because just as freedom of press is essential for democracy, democracy itself also ensures freedom of press.

    Democracy is the rule by the people and for the people. Media or press is very important to express and disseminate public opinion. So if there is no freedom of press, there is no democracy. Again democracy ensures that the nation is ruled by the public opinion. This also includes that the press is unbiased and tells about the public.

    So the words 'democracy' and 'freedom of press' are complementary to each other.

    I think that the Nobel Peace Prize and Power are connected. The reason is, those who achieved this award for their hard work get to the center of attention of the world. I said power in the sense that the Nobel Prize winners will get weight on their voices and can easily motivate or aware mass people. For example - Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov were fighting for the freedom of journalists of their country. Now that both of them won the Nobel Prize, it is a lot easier for them to raise mass awareness and fight against the opposing party. Anyone can come up with the pledge to fight against injustice but only after getting mass approval from people, one can achieve it.

    Freedom of the press and democracy are connected because ensuring one will automatically bring out the other in a country. If there is freedom of press in a country, the journalists would report any incident of voter fraud or any other incident threatening the democracy of a country. This will cause people to protest and set things right. If there is democracy in a country, freedom of press will exist as the government would have to be transparent and free from underhanded measures. This will create freedom of press as the journalists would have nothing to fear about.

    I think the freedom of the press and truth are connected.

    If I give the terminology of freedom of the press, I would say that it's the ultimate power of the journalists to publish or broadcast any fact they want to reveal in front of everyone and there would be no one to interfere. And actually, we all know what truth is, we just need to realize that.

    The truth behind any major fact can be revealed to us if and only if the freedom of the press is ensured. In every instance, lots of illegal jobs are being done but none of those are being exposed because of the major power working behind that and protecting that from being exposed. If any journalist even comes to know that fact and tries to reveal that, they are somehow made stopped. As a result, the truth is never revealed again if any journalist becomes successful in revealing any of those, they need to pay a huge price for that and sometimes their life goes at stake.

    But if the freedom of the press is ensured, there remains no hesitation for the journalists in publishing or broadcasting any truth making journalism much easier as well as making the journalists reachable to all of us. That's why I think that freedom of the press and truth are deeply interconnected.

    Freedom of the press and truth is connected because journalist bring to the limelight so many crucial information and bad world politics in front of everyone's eyes. If freedom of press is ensured, yellow journalism can be stopped and we will get to know the truth around us. We will be able to know the real condition of Uighur Muslims, afghans who are tortured by Taliban, Asian hate and extremism in USA and we can stop incidents like that happened with Aafia Siddique. Thus these two words are connected.

      Freedom of the press and democracy are related. Freedom of the press means correct expression and communication through published media such as printed matter and video. Freedom of the press is codified in several documents that set international standards. The government must not interfere with this freedom or censor media that criticize the state. Freedom of the press has been an integral part of democracy for many years. In a democracy, people have the right to choose a government, either directly or through the election of representatives. Healthy democracy has guidelines such as citizenship, fair and free elections, protection of individual rights, and cooperation. A free press is important to realize these principles. There are three main reasons for this. One is that the free press fights for the truth. Second, the free press blames power. Third: Free news outlets inform voters and strengthen democracy

    Freedom and democracy are linked to each other, because democracy helps the society to exercise it freely, because freedom is achieved without any coercion or pressure, and the democratic system can only be established in the presence of an atmosphere of freedom. Elections and protection, freedom must be achieved for all the people of the world so that democracy can spread.
    If there is no person who enjoys freedom, there will be no real democracy, because there will be no elections, no laws, and no laws that achieve freedom for society.
    In the end, my question is:
    How does a slave adapt to freedom and a prisoner to an open sunny horizon?

Overwhelmingly, these people live in countries where there is no democracy (the absence of democracy means the absence of freedom of the press), freedom of the press is Journalism is a highly problematic concept for most undemocratic regimes, as strict control of access to information in the modern era is critical to the existence of most undemocratic governments and their associated security apparatus. to this end.

    I think that Freedom of press and safety are connected because safetyis the key to freedom of press. If you feel safe, you will be free to say, vote, speak and do whatever you want. You will be able to tell truth and judge situations without being afraid of any power or authority to be stopped or punished. Safety enables free journalist to be fair in his thinking to find reality in order to solve conflicts. It is safety which makes him independent in his decisions and away from bias and racism to reach to the best consequences, it is safety makes him sensitive to people's suffering in order to help them. By the safety we can achieve freedom of press and with this we can achieve other people's freedom, who's freedom has been stolen.

    whats the truth ?
    It is the transfer of what is actually happening without forgery or distortion.
    What is freedom of the press?
    When journalists are free to report the truth without government interference.
    What does the truth have to do with freedom of the press?
    The journalist must have his news truthful without falsification and distortion of reality to gain the trust of the people, because people have recently become well aware that there are often no independent media that are interested in informing people of the facts.
    They hear something and see something different on earth, so who will believe: their hearing or their sight? They believe their eyes and lie to their ears.
    Therefore, the media and the press must be honest and report events as they are.

    I think freedom of the press is linked to independence. Because every person has the right to express his sovereignty and capabilities, to form opinions without interference from anyone, and to receive and transfer information and ideas through modern means of communication. In terms of government information, governments can distinguish which materials they decide to disclose to the public or withhold. Countries protect their material for one of two reasons: either because of the sensitivity and confidentiality of the information, or because the information is linked to protecting the national interest of countries.

    Democracy and the Nobel Peace Prize are related to each other because the Nobel Peace Prize is a prize for a person who in the previous year has done “the most or the best work of fraternity among nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the peace and promotion of it.” Democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens participate equally. They are similar because they both describe how people can have a say in anything. and how they live. Democracy does not always see anything.
    The Nobel Peace Prize allows us to recognize rights and wrongs.

    FREEDOM OF PRESS and POWER are connected in a way that no one may anticipate.
    This is the era of technology. The most valuable wealth in the whole world is information. Never before have we seen such dominance of information in the field of power and might. They say, "Your secrets make you stronger." And in the era of information, they sure do. But what threatens your might most, what endangers your darkest secrets is the FREEDOM OF PRESS. This is crucial because it promotes an informed citizenry by providing access to somewhat private information to everyone. But the less the population knows about the other side of the coin, the better for the dominants.
    If it were physics I'd say the freedom of press in a country is inversely proportional to the power of the dominant. It can be very easily understood if we do just a simple bit of research on how the press has been manipulated over the years and who did that. In simple words, If the press is powerful in your state and without any bounds, your dark deeds will be exposed, throwing you off-balance in the field of power.

      It is the authority that constitutes an obstacle to the freedom of the journalist, but the journalist should not also disclose information that a person likes to keep in complete privacy, but if it were political scandals concerning the people, he should expose them, but private information, why should it be published? Is this not an attack on privacy? Of course, the journalist has the freedom to publish what he wants, but this freedom should not touch the privacy of others, for example, there is a Dispatch agency, which exposes the dating of celebrities and Post their privacy and they follow them everywhere, as this is how they take away the right of the celebrity to live his private life the way he wants Therefore, I think the authority should stop journalists from interfering with privacy only. As for scandals, political conspiracies, and sexual assaults on others, they must be exposed, and any party that causes pressure on the journalist so as not to expose it, the Press Agency must cooperate to expose it, The truth about the people, which tarnishes the reputation of the government and the people, must be exposed, and everyone must be held accountable for their mistakes

    I found a relation in "Freedom of the Press" with "Truth" because although the journalists have the freedom to publish the news, they cannot publish true incidents against the government. Which ultimately indicates- the freedom the journalists have is not freedom! They publish the incident which the government makes true. At national, regional and local level, journalists are the public’s watchdog, educator, entertainer and contemporary, chronicler. So to open up their mouths to hear the true situation, many organizations are trying to provide them protection and facilities such as the United Nations organized “World Press Freedom Day” on 3rd May.

    ‘Nobel Peace Prize’ and ‘Power’ are connected. Because, winning a Nobel peace prize is a recognization to the world. And, this recognization brings world support and that is the power. Dmitry Muratov and Maria Ressa are worked to establish freedom in press. From their story we’ve got that they had to spend time in jail, sometimes faced conspiracies and their colleagues were martyred. But, as winners of Nobel peace prize, they are now strong enough to continue their job of journalism. Journalists from the whole world, common people and world democracy are the supportive power to them.

    Freedom of the press and democracy are intertwined.
    “Freedom of the press is necessary for democracy because it is one of its pillars. Without this, citizens will not be informed of current facts and events, good or bad, and will not be able to make informed and independent decisions, ”said Bernice Soriano.
    An unfastened and impartial press is considered to be a key mechanism of a functioning, wholesome democracy. In the absence of censorship, journalism exists as a guardian of private and governmental action, providing information to maintain an informed citizenry of the voters. And when the voters are conscious and aware of the current facts, they can contribute to transparent democracy. Thus Freedom of the press and democracy are related.

      I agree with you. Freedom of the press and democracy are related. Because informed voting is the third reason why press freedom is so important. Democracy only thrives when voters get as much information as possible. Informed people can understand the problems at stake and ensure which policies and politicians best represent them. The press is the agency that provides information by analyzing information, inspiring debate, and verifying facts. The freer the media, the more information voters can get. Without this freedom, voters would win elections and be at the mercy of politicians and stakeholders who want to promote certain laws. It is very difficult and time-consuming for voters to do all the work themselves. Powerful media reduce process complexity and provide valuable insights.

    In my opinion, there is a link between freedom of the press and the truth. Freedom of the press controls reality and simplifies the media’s control over its various aspects. It has made our relationship with this world not based on our direct experience, as much as it is determined according to the vision that it presents to us ready through its recognized types and arts. The production of meaning and with it the truth as well.

    The main function of the media is to “inform.” Therefore, we find that the masses view media platforms as news channels and expect them to convey the truth and deliver news and information with honesty and accuracy.

    Freedom of the press is closely and closely related to safety because safety accompanies freedom of the press, while if the government provides the press with full protection and occupational safety, the journalist will do his job perfectly, and vice versa.
    The state is scheduled to provide full protection for journalists, which is stipulated in public international law, but in most countries of the world, I do not see any country that provides public safety for journalists.

    Freedom of the press is linked with independence because freedom of the press is the principle that indicates that the right to free exercise of communication and expression of opinion must be observed through all available media, print and electronic, and in particular published materials. This freedom includes the absence of excessive interference by states, and its protection by the constitution and the law. Either independence is a condition, status, or ability to self-governance or a degree of independence. Some synonyms of autonomy would be sovereignty, autonomy, independence, emancipation and power. . Thus, autonomy of a person is the ability or condition to carry out tasks in an independent manner. This means that the freedom of the press infringes on his independence and his expression of freedom. Therefore, every person has the right to freedom and independence by himself and his land, and to express the freedom of expression and opinion in which he believes.

    Freedom of the press and safety are connected.
    There is a famous saying: "Freedom of the press is the roof of the sky." Unfortunately, the reality indicates the opposite. Journalists today, when expressing a dissenting opinion or revealing hidden facts, are subjected to violence and stripped of their liberties, thus jeopardizing their safety.
    I think that the journalist today in any political movement or anywhere is subjected to attacks and harassment to prevent him from expressing and conveying the truth, whether by threatening or attacking him and thus exposing him to danger, and this is what we see in our reality. All of this is considered a violation of the freedom and safety of the journalist.
    Therefore, we must uphold the rights of journalists and ensure that their freedoms and safety are not restricted or suppressed.

    Freedom of the press and independence are interrelated, as if there is no external control restricting journalists, they enjoy their freedom to transmit information, and thus the press will be able to disseminate information on a larger scale where there is no pressure or restriction on the one hand with

    I think freedom of the press is related to the truth.The journalists have the full right to report the truth without having any fear in mind.They can establish the truth.If press freedom is not given ,they will not be able to publish the truth.Many political parties or leaders may make them afraid. But they should have independence in speaking and reporting truth.

    I think Nobel Peace prize and power are interconnected as the prize will allow one either gain power or to lose that. Let me explain below-
    One is awarded Nobel Prize for doing some extra ordinary work in their fields. So, it will sure bring him/her the honor and power. But if he/she do something for the mass people going against the powerful and rich personalities of our society, it will make him/her enemy to them. So it will be tough to hold the power for long.

    Freedom of press and power is connected because honest news have the ability to aware the general people and even can develop national unity at the time of necessity . Actually what does human want ? Humans want themselves not to be deceived and receive the correct news . And the media which is free from external influence have the power to aware the humans about the truth and happenings around him in the best possible way . Truth to be told , news can help the population of a country to make a history by informing about critical situations and encourage the whole nation to come forward and initiate a solution to the situation . It is because people believe what they hear in the news and they address the problem while watching the news because they believe that the press will spread the honest news to them . Also this news can be used to destroy the reputation of the country by the spreading of false news . And this is a power that the press holds .
    So freedom of press and power is connected with one another.

    I think Freedom of press and Democracy are connected because it is one of its pillars. A healthy democracy has guiding principles like citizen rule, fair and free elections, the protection of individual rights, and cooperation. To ensure these principles become a reality, a free press is important. Freedom of the press matters because a free press uncovers the truth. There are many issues – often very complicated ones that journalists are trained to analyze and explain. Without newspapers, radio shows, blogs, etc. the average person would have little or no knowledge of what’s going on around them. And if the journalists are suppressed and deprived of their right to report those matters, they remain completely buried. For this reason, I think freedom of press and democracy are connected.

      I agree. Freedom of the press and democracy are related. Because freedom of the press is important for an informed vote. Democracy only thrives when voters receive as much information as possible. Informed people can understand the issues at stake and know which politicians and politicians are best representing them. The press is an institution that analyzes information, stirs up debate, and provides information by confirming facts. The freer the press, the more information voters have. Without this freedom, voters would win elections and fall into the hands of politicians and stakeholders who want to push specific laws. It is very difficult and time-consuming for voters to do all the work themselves. Powerful media simplifies the process and provides valuable information.

    I think Freedom of the Press and Independence are connected because Independence gives the right to do something freely and no one can control it from outside. In case of Freedom of the press, the journalists have right to say the truth either it was good or bad for others. No one can create any hindrance to the journalists for publishing any right information. If there is no freedom or independence, journalists could not do anything to expose the truth to the citizens.

    A journalist have the freedom to expose the truth to the citizens. But sometimes they have to face some dangers. Some of them have the risk of life. That’s why they give up their hope and they cannot move forward.
    Some brave journalists fight for the truth without caring about their life.
    So I think if the government would ensure the safety of the journalists, many journalists would have come forward and the real truth would have been exposed to us.

    Freedom of press and truth are connected because if there is a freedom of journalists to speak up without any kind of resistance the truth will come out. Neither government nor anyone can stop the truth to be revealed in front of all. If we can ensure freedom of press the rights of the people will be ensured. People will be able to know what is actually going on around them and in the state. Though press sometimes lies for but by providing full freedom to the press we can get all the truth covered.

      True words, as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was adopted by the United Nations in 1948, said: “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; regardless of country borders.

      Sweden is the first country in the world to adopt press freedom in its constitution through the Freedom of the Press in 1788. Reporters Without Borders prepares an annual report on the Press Freedom Index, and publishes it based on the organization's assessment of the press freedom record in each country. The report is based on a questionnaire sent to partner organizations with Reporters Without Borders, including 14 freedom of expression groups on five continents and 130 correspondents around the world, in addition to journalists, researchers, lawyers and human rights activists.
      The questionnaire asks questions about attacks against journalists and media professionals, as well as sources that prove pressures on the free press.

    The Nobel Peace Prize is one of the best awards for working for people. But this movement requires a lot of struggle and sacrifice that escapes our attention.
    But the glorious prize of peace gave them the support of the people and the support of the media. Nobel laureates can use it as an advantage to achieve their goals. This advantage can be remarked as power .

    There is a connection between 'freedom of press' and 'power'.Most of the time,mass people of any country relies on printed and online newspapers,television news,different websites and social sites to have an updated view on their motherland and world.And most of these communication lines can be freely manipulated by press workers if and only if there is freedom of press on that very area where they live.So,we can easily say that,if there is freedom of press,then reporters and other press workers can easily have a control over the mind of mass people.And in a truely democratic state,mass people is the source of all power as government is selected by their votes.Like this,in a country where there is freedom of press,press workers can indirectly be the source of power as they can have a good control over people's mind.If the reporters are honest,they can also make the mass people know the truth.Contrarily,the country where there is no freedom of press,government of that country usually controls the newspapers of that country by spreading propaganda in favor of their own political views.They use the press to promote their own political team.So the truth also remains unknown to mass people.And so,inspite of that state being democratic,because of not having freedom of press,the mass people of that country will be manipulated by the government to give votes in elections in favor of the existing government.As for example-'According to Freedom House’s Freedom in the World data, media freedom has been deteriorating around the world over the past decade, with new forms of repression taking hold in open societies and authoritarian states alike. The trend is most acute in Europe, previously a bastion of well-established freedoms, and in Eurasia and the Middle East, where many of the world’s worst dictatorships are concentrated'(The example is taken from- https://freedomhouse.org/report/freedom-and-media/2019/media-freedom-downward-spiral ).Finally,we can undoubtedly say that,'freedom of press' and 'power' is connected with each other.

    Freedom of the press and their safety are related because the safety of journalists lies in the ability of journalists and media professionals to capture, present and share information without being exposed to any kind of physical or moral threats. Journalists may face violence and intimidation as a result of freedom of expression and face threats, murder, kidnapping, hostage-taking, harassment, being offline, intimidation and forcibly hidden from view. and arbitrary protest and torture. Female journalists are increasingly exposed to a special type of danger, assault and harassment, represented by hostile speech and bullying. Therefore, journalists must be protected and their rights protected.

    Nobel PEACE prize and POWER are connected because peace comes with unrestricted power. The ability to control consciousness and mobilise people into a common ambition without use of hostile practices is an impeccable demonstration of responsible authority.
    Term, 'power' usually carries a dark connotation and 'peace' is an excessively optimistic term. There intersection evinces opportunities for the world to develop into a better place.
    A Nobel Peace prize winner however may not necessarily have legal representation but the power to unite certainly positions the person at the top of cycle of power.

        Yeah surely.
        Peace does come with power and power is followed by responsibilities.
        One prominent example I can think of is the time of independence (India & Pakistan). After the independence struggle, Britain left it to the nation to decide its future, they left us with the power to decide. While there were a few developing communal antagonisms, it was a comparatively peaceful and united nation that had just collectively gained freedom from autocracy. Following discussions led to the dreadful partition, eventually ruining unity and diversity India has been known for. Partition stills play an immense role in the enmity between India - Pakistan and religious communities.
        Though many factors played a crucial role in the decision, one of them was to maintain the existing peace between communities by dividing the land into what the authority believed was inevitable.
        Power led to a decision that divided instead of uniting, induced hostility instead of maintaining peace.

        That's how I feel about peace - power and power disturbing peace. I hope I understood your question correctly and answered it as well

    I think that freedom of the press and power are connected in a very unique way.
    We are living in a technologically inclined era, Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos of life may have the physical money, but if you ask me anyone with information is way more valuable, it just depends on the information you have. Here is an example, who do you think has it better? A man who has millions of dollars but has even more secrets in the hands of the press; or a man who is somewhat average but has a clean conscience and no supposed "empowering" secrets in the hands of anyone. Just think about that.
    I am going to end with a quote.

    1. Climate change is long-term shifts in temperature and weather patterns. My feeling is that it is an important thing and it is necessary to work on it because it is an essential thing in human life. Climate change undergoes many changes.
    2. It is necessary to listen to all different points of view when making a climate decision. It is possible to find the appropriate solution to this problem. It is natural that there are different opinions, but we rarely find the appropriate solution. If everyone is not listened to, the problem will not be solved
    3. It is difficult to make events comprehensive. For example, Cop26 organizers choose who speaks but at a specific time and also in the end they take the opinion of the leaders of countries
    4 . The Climate Summit was established in 1994 and will be held in Glasgow. It is good to include all points of view by writing the solution on a piece of paper and putting the collected papers in a machine that collects and categorizes similar opinions and includes all countries and their leaders and agree on that topic
    5. It is necessary to share my opinion, it could help to solve the problem as it is related to our lives. 🪐

    Protection in freedom of the press is very closely related to the fact that freedom of the press cannot be achieved without protection.
    In some countries the press is threatened so that it does not publish the truth, and also the press, their dignity, their integrity is under attack, they are detained so that they do not appear in the news and tell the truth freely, so that they cannot do their work properly, a free press can only protect, we We have in Palestine many journalists who suffer from the threat of the occupation and its crimes, and are subjected to imprisonment and detention, for not showing the truth and information to the world, so I call on countries to give the press protection and enact laws to protect journalists in all countries, because it is the basis of information

    If we look back in the history of noble prize receivers, all of them have worked for the Truth, which the world was afraid to admit. Carl von Ossietzky has fought against the German military to spread the news of Nazis, Mother Teresa worked through her whole life to establish the rights and needs of the deprived people, Martin Luther King got Noble prize for his works to make United States void of separation and racism, First Korean Noble laureate, Kim Dae Jung laid the foundation for peaceful reunification of the two Korean states, which had been in a state of war since 1950. And recently Dimitri Muratov and Maira Ressa have won the Noble Prize for their indomitable journalism against the authoritarian rule of Russia and the illegal killing of the ' War on Drugs ' in the Philippines respectively. It may seem that these Laureates from different eras and centuries have got noble prizes for their individual works and it is correct. But all of their works were done to expose the truths that were neglected in some cases and were kept hidden in others. It is very reasonable to say that the Noble Peace Prize had a meaningful connection with Truth.

    In short, FREEDOM OF PRESS is vital to the proper functioning of DEMOCRACY. It is important for people to be socially aware of world events. You must have the right to criticize the government; he will keep the administration in vigilance to do better for the country. Freedom of the press, protected by the First Amendment, is essential to a democracy in which government is accountable to the people. The free media acts as a watchdog that can investigate and report government misconduct.

    I think all these keywords are strongly connected to each other.
    But as I am asked to connect two of these I choose Freedom of the press and safety. I have chosen these not because these are the most important. Rather I have chosen these because it's the most relevant combination in the present situation.
    We all know that both noble peace prize winners of this year are journalists. And from my sight, they both had to struggle a lot in their life because they didn't have the freedom of the press but still they wrote and broadcasted sometimes even against the law. Even some of their colleagues had to pay the price of their bravery, true journalistic characteristics, and goodwill with their lives.
    Actually, the fact behind this is, In most cases, if there is no freedom of the press then there is no safety of the journalists. The journalists always remain in fear for publishing even a minor fact against any strong power or government because it also may take a serious turn in their life and thus hampering their safety.

    On the other hand, where the freedom of the press is ensured truly, they don't need to be anxious about their safety. They can write, publish and broadcast whatever they want. That's why I think that the two keywords, Freedom of the Press and Safety are strongly interrelated.

    'Freedom of the press' and 'Truth' these two terms are so much related to each other. Because freedom of the press only can ensure to publish the fact or reality. Where there is no freedom of the press, no freedom to express the real fact, there can't be any expectation of truth and justice. That's how truth can be exercised because of only freedom of the press.

    “A Free Press, at Its Best, Reveals the Truth”- The Baines Report.

    Freedom of the press provides citizens with information about current facts and events, including the good and the bad, so that they know what is really happening. A loose and impartial press is de facto considered a key mechanism of a factual state. In the absence of censorship, journalists are free to investigate public and private issues and provide facts to the press to spread them around the world. If there is freedom of the press, there prevails truth because the truth has endurance and it always triumphs. Freedom of the press guarantees disclosure of facts, even if the whistleblowers have to endure. The truth will blow its own trumpet because the freedom of the press builds public trust to spread the truth and maintains its dignity.

    Conversely, without freedom of the press, the truth will not be brought to light because of the power of the ruling class. The facts will be crushed by the suppression of the ruling class before it confronts the world. Only the delusions and lies will get the scope to slip through their hands. Even if somebody tries to reveal the truth, most people will treat the fact as a lie as they are so accustomed to "eating" false news. The truth loses its importance, its dignity without the freedom of the press. As Maria Ressa, winner of the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, said, "Without facts, you can't have truth and without truth, you can't have trust."

    So we can conclude that "Freedom of the press" and "Truth" are intertwined.

    FREEDOM OF THE PRESS and SAFETY is connected in a very interesting way.

    Freedom of the press allows us to get solid news i.e. news that hasn’t been tampered with under the influence of the government and other corrupt communities. If such news is published, the illegitimate works of corrupt people will be unveiled and people will become aware of the things happening behind their back. Hence, the people who were in discomfort and facing problems due to the illegal works will be relieved of their inconveniences.
    On the other hand, the people who had the possibility of facing problems due to such acts will no longer have to face such inconveniences.
    Tax evasion can be an example. Those who evade tax keep on getting richer and wealthier whereas the slums are dreaming of development initiatives. If the taxes are not paid properly, how is it possible for the government to ensure the development of the needy community? Even worse, if the government officials themselves are involved, then honestly there’s nothing else to dream of. The Pandora Papers have revealed a lot of these and hopefully actions are going to be taken. There are many other examples of such occurrences and some are even worse.

    So, by exposing these illegal works, they are ensuring the safety of the livelihood of these poor souls and in some cases, the freedom of the press is ensuring their physical safety as well. For example, if the journalists could not tell the world about the Rohingya Crisis due to fear, Rohingyas could have been still in the same situation as before.

    So, FREEDOM OF THE PRESS and SAFETY have a deep connection.

    SAFETY is the precondition for the FREEDOM OF PRESS. Many journalists can't do their work properly due to the threats and suppression from the people being reported. Journalists are known to us as brave people who don't care about threats and continue to strive for justice even though they are continuously harassed. But even the journalists have a family to care about. For their SAFETY, many times the journalists have to back off from reporting against them. As such, the FREEDOM OF PRESS is hampered. In this way, FREEDOM OF PRESS and SAFETY are connected in a roundabout way.

    Freedom of press is connected to power....

    State materials are protected due to either one of two reasons: The classification of information as sensitive, classified or secret, or the relevance of the information to protecting the national interest. Many governments are also subject to "sunshine laws” or freedom of information legislation that are used to define the ambit of national interest and enable citizens to request access to government-held information. So, without the power press cannot publish anything.
    If press doesn’t have any power to publish then they don’t have any freedom to publish. There is no freedom without power. Power and freedom of press are interrelated. Press need power to have freedom they also need power to protect that freedom. NO POWER means NO FREEDOM

    I believe in the link between freedom of speech and power.
    We all know that freedom of speech is just an opportunity for journalists to report the truth.
    Comparing the freedom of the press with some of the controversial rulers in the world, it can be seen that all of the press freedoms such as North Korea and Russia are suppressed. Because it is clear that free speech can fight tyranny. This is why these authorities regard freedom of the press as their primary enemy. So I think the word 'power' is another side of the coin as opposed to freedom of speech.

    I think that this interests me, as all these concepts and words came to my mind to relate to my previous background, whether study or what we see on the ground. The power of press freedom does not increase unless it find democracy that allows freedom of participation, opinion and expression.
    Which makes it more independent and thus not subject to any pressures. This increases the objective and honest reporting of the truth by journalists and media professionals, thus their feeling of safety when they uncover crimes and corruption so Freedom of the Press is deserves Nobel Peace Prize.

    Freedom of press and Safety are connected.
    When a journalist finds out a piece of information that should be revealed for greater benefit of mass people, he/she needs to reveal that without having any kind of fear in mind. When we talk about the fear in mind we mean that any such incident which may endanger the journalist’s life for publishing such news even though beneficial for mass people. When the press of a country bears no such fear in mind while publishing something whether it is an ordinary story or something very confidential the freedom of speech is being ensured. Now what happens usually in a confidential story, whether a powerful/rich/politician will be exploiting over poor/ordinary people. Revealing such stories creates a scope for the safety of the life of those poor/ordinary people as they might get free this time from the impact of the powerful ones.
    Maria Ressa, the 2021 Noble Peace Prize holder used freedom of press to expose abuse of power, use of violence and growing authoritarianism in her native country, the Philippines and as of now the incidents occurring rate and gradually decreased. So, safety is being gradually ensured here. Moreover, safety to the life of Maria Ressa is also being ensured as she is safe and alive too. Safety matters both for the journalist and the victims.

    Perhaps what we need at the present time is our need for freedom of the press, which and democracy are two sides of the same coin, and we can only link them in one context. Here, do we want democracy?? Yes, of course.. How is that?? By preserving the freedom of the press while remaining active, perhaps a strong democracy is to encourage a free press that keeps the public informed of events and also allows all voices to be raised without exception and holds everyone accountable from leaders to the base

    Nobel Prize and Truth are connected.

    Nobel Prize is considered the most prestigious award in the world. Great people who have unfolded mysteries of science, created peace or created something that amazed the whole world are awarded Nobel Prize.

    Truth is something which often remains hidden in nature or is hidden by people. Those who have received Nobel Prize tried to find out that truth and reveal it to the whole world. Truth in the current political world is something rare. Political power has surpassed the urge to disclose the truth a long time ago. Searching the truth became harder than going to war. But in reality this truth is the only thing which only brings blessings without any suffering. Alfred Nobel also wanted that. His heart was broken when his creation wasn’t used for the true purpose. So he started the Nobel Prize for those who want nothing but the truth.

    Highlighting the truth is the only thing that can end the tyranny of political influence and power from this world and the Nobel Prize will award those who achieve it.

    Freedom of the press and Truth are connected because freedom of press means to reveal any truth to the public by the journalists so that the required justice can be served by the public. Truth mean any kind of information in accordance with fact or reality. So both are interconnected because if journalist exposes the truth to the public independently without the interference of others then Truth and Freedom of Press is served.

    In my opinion, Nobel Peace Prize and Independence are connected in an interesting way.
    If we take a step back and look at the list of Nobel Laureates for the year 2021, it has been said on the official website that the Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize to Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov “for their efforts to safeguard freedom of expression, which is a precondition for democracy and lasting peace.” In fact, all the Nobel Peace Prize winners were the voice for the voiceless, courage for the oppressed. They informed the world every time that everyone has their own rights and their own dignity. Without independence or freedom of speech, many untold stories of many people become suppressed under the might of influential personalities. The Nobel Peace Laureates raised their voices on behalf of the oppressed and exploited, and let the world know about the circumstances totally kept in the dark. Every person irrespective of their caste, creed, or gender has their own rights and their own roles in constituting the society as a whole. And so, everyone has the responsibility of making their nation develop with the collective efforts and unanimous decisions of all the citizens. But when there's chaos between the people, when the voice of the oppressed falls silent, then what hopes do the people have for building up a peaceful society? The Nobel Peace Prize is given every year to those individuals who decide to hold the torch and raise their heads up to the whole world and let everyone know that courage isn't the absence of fear, it's about overcoming that fear, and that everyone can rekindle that spirit of fighting for their freedom.
    That's why Nobel Peace Prize and Independence are connected closely.

    I find freedom of press and truth related to each other.

    If the press doesn’t have the freedom to express facts and reality then for sure , falsehood will engulf the state and so international community also can not resolve the problems.
    China and North Korea; China is the biggest jailer of journalists in the world, according to Reporters Without Borders (RSF), both China and North Korea are in very serious condition in terms of freedom of press.
    A former Chinese state media journalist turned anti-corruption blogger has been sentenced to 15 years in prison (CNN). The autocratic regime in North Korea has buried democracy for years. If the press had the freedom to speak bold, truth hidden inside would have been revealed and scenarios could have been different.

    I think freedom of the press and democracy are interconnected. By democracy it is meant that the general people will vote and choose the government. So the government chosen by the people is reliable enough to create a healthy environment in the country so that the journalists can have freedom of speech. And also if the press have freedom then they can bring out any misdeeds while the election happens and thus can ensure democracy in the country.

    Freedom of the press and safety are connected because the failure to prevent the killing of journalists and attacks on the media means that governments and authorities around the world are depriving us of a fundamental right guaranteed to us by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – that of freely receiving and imparting information and ideas, i.e. the freedom of the press. Every journalist killed or neutralized by terror is an observer less of the human condition. Every attack distorts reality by creating a climate of fear and self-censorship. The appeal has to be made to governments and public authorities because the killers who carry out the murders, the people responsible for the attacks and the dark forces behind the violence are probably impervious to reason and beyond any appeal to conscience.

    Freedom of the press and safety, I think they are linked, but there are countries with less freedom of the press, the danger increases so that the journalist will be attacked as soon as he does his job, which is spreading the truth, or when he asks to hold the people of influence accountable. The free press is a medium for presenting the truth to people
    I think the biggest analogy to this relationship is "Standing on quicksand".
    A world without facts means a world without trust
    A free press is the truth and transparency of news , no matter what the risks, the truth needs courage.

    I think that freedom of the press and power are connected because if we ensure freedom of the press, then they can use their power to influence over society. They have the power to expose the scandals by the corrupt persons in power to ensure good governance such as The Soweto Uprising of 1976 in South Africa, Watergate Scandal, Panama Papers Scandal, Pandora Papers Scandal, etc exposed many corruptions of central govt of different countries and organizations and ensured humanity all over the world.

    I am going to show the connection between freedom of press and independence. The most disastrous form of dependence is the dependence for information. If the information channels can be controlled, everything is vulnerable to gross manipulative attempts. The job of preventing this crisis falls upon the journalists. The people aspiring to be independent must have access to the events around them and create a powerful network of socio-political consciousness, and the driving force of this independent and powerful mass is the authentic, objective and unbiased news. Most importantly, news representation with any incentive except serving the mass wisdom is harmful for independence. Thus, freedom of press means the emancipation of public opinion from any sort of manipulative propaganda or apathy towards the happenings around the world; both of which viciously threaten independence. So, freedom of press is invariably essential to independence.

    I chose the Nobel Peace Prize and Power. The
    Nobel Peace Prize has been recognized for the highest achievements by those working for the good of humanity around the world. This has inspired many to dedicate themselves to humanity.
    The winners are making an impact on politics and the media around the world. In other words, the Nobel Prize provides an opportunity to influence important decisions made by world leaders. In short, they gain power. Aung Sansuki is an example of an abuse of the privilege of the Nobel Peace Prize. She used it to support the genocide, although she exerted influence over the Myanmar army that carried out the genocide against the Rohingya. On the other hand, people like Ludwig Quidde, Arthur Henderson, and Mother Teresa used this power to accelerate the revolution. So, in fact, the Nobel Peace Prize has a strong bond with power.

    In my findings, Noble Peace Prize and Power are deeply connected.

    A noble laureate in peace is definitely someone who had substantial contribution to the community. When that person is recognized, all his works and activities come to light and the whole world gets to know that.
    Now if we dig deep, the job that was done to solve any issue of any particular community by a noble peace prize winner is somehow relatable to some other stories of some other countries in the different corners of the world. And here exactly comes the fact of POWER,
    " The power is not a visible or evident one, yet has a great deal of impacts in the lives of the people".
    For much clarity, I may bring the example of the world's youngest Noble Peace Prize Winner, Malala Yusufzai's story.
    She just fought for her community's girls, their rights to education. But now, that protest is not just confined within the border of Pakistan, women around the world are influenced by it. And Malala Yusufzai is not the voice of Pakistan only, she has become the Global voice. Few days back, we have seen her effort to convince Taliban in Afghanistan for the women's access of education.
    so definitely it is a huge power I will say

    If we appearance returned on the records of the recipients of the distinguished award, they all labored for the Truth, which the arena become afraid to admit. Carl von Ossietzky fought towards the German military to unfold Nazi propaganda, Mother Teresa labored all her lifestyles to set up the rights and wishes of the poor, Martin Luther King obtained the Noble Award for paintings His venture to dispose of the United States of America via way of means of Kim Dae Jung, the primary winner of the Korean Noble Prize, laid the principles for the non violent reunification of the 2 Korea's, that have been in a country of battle seeing that 1950. And recently, Dimitri Muratov and Maira Ressa gained the Noble Prize. for his or her indomitable journalism. towards the Russian dictatorship and unlawful killing respectively within side the "battle on drugs" within side the Philippines. It appears that laureates from distinct eras and centuries have obtained noble awards for his or her man or woman paintings and this is correct. But all their paintings has been carried out to reveal the reality that has been omitted in a few instances and hid in others. It is affordable to mention that the Noble Peace Prize has a enormous connection to the Truth.

    Freedom of the press is linked to democracy because the relationship between them is dialectical, which makes each one affect the other and be affected by it on a continuous basis, as the relationship does not stop and freedom of the press is considered the most important element of democracy and democracy constitutes the framework that contains and protects freedom within it, perhaps the picture has become clear that Embracing and containing, there must be a strong relationship between them, and democracy cannot exist without freedom and vice versa, and we can say that it is a purely complementary relationship...

    The concept of freedom of the press is connected with the concept of power
    The link may be inverse if the force means the power of the state to suppress and prevent the freedom of the press and restrict ideas and the authority is dictatorial
    The relationship may be direct if it is meant by force that it is the force in freedom of the press, where the journalist has the courage and strength and can tell the truth despite being abused, or if the state gives him this freedom and the press gains strength in freedom of expression

    FREEDOM OF THE PRESS and INDEPENDENCE share a fascinating bond.
    ‘Freedom’ and ‘Independence ‘are already synonymous. But when the term is ‘FREEDOM OF THE PRESS’, it holds a different meaning. It usually means the scope for journalists and news companies to publish authentic news without any external influence. This allows them to provide the people with true news and facts.
    When powerful and corrupt people in society oppress the poor and helpless people, all the time those people seek support and help from someone. But most of the time it is seen that they have no one to share it with. Moreover, they also doubt the extent of influence the authorities can exert on their sorry state.
    Take the Brazilian favelas for example; these favelas are the government neglect in the history of Brazil. They are ruled by criminal gangs. The government has started initiatives but the gangs are still in power and the government cannot do anything about it because they have exercised power for a very long time. If this issue was taken care of before, the people in the favelas would have been living in a good state now. They even fought COVID by themselves.
    When there is freedom of the press, these helpless people have someone through whom their voices will be heard. Through this, the world will be able to know about their situation and they will no longer have to rely on uncertain help from the government. Also, the powerful and corrupt persons will be exposed, their influence will be withdrawn and thus the needy ones of the society will gain independence.

    So, there exists a splendid relation between FREEDOM OF THE PRESS and INDEPENDENCE.

    Freedom of the press and democracy are more closely related than we can imagine. If the democratic state gives its residents complete freedom to say what bothers them, their problems and their opinions, this enhances the freedom of the press, where the press can publish what bothers people and does not satisfy them, and publishes their opinions rejecting something. . The non-interference of the government in this freedom strengthens and develops it.
    In my opinion, democracy and freedom of the press are linked, as current and resistance are related as the intensity of current and resistance are related to the potential difference. The greater the current or resistance, the greater the potential difference.
    (Ohm's physical law) as well as democracy and freedom of the press. The greater the democracy, the greater the freedom of the press, and the less freedom of the press, the less democracy

    'Freedom of the press' and 'Safety' these two terms are so much related to each other_

    Freedom of the press is such a power of the journalist community so that they can publish the truth without any hesitation or any permission from specific authority. It ensures of revealing the fact.
    On the other hand safety is so much important at the time of covering live news or while publishing the reality before public. This freedom of the press ensures the safety of journalists and also gives the right to publish truth.

    That's how these two terms are connected.

    The Nobel Peace Prize and power have a very deep and powerful bond.For example, if you are a student in the class and you are always exposed to ridicule and ridicule by your colleagues because you are lazy in your studies.
    Then you worked hard in your studies and excelled, and then you got an award and were honored in front of all the students.

    Of course you'll have the guts then to stand up for yourself when they're being laughed at again. And you will have the power to do what you want and act as you want, but under certain conditions and you should not pass these restrictions.This is how it will become if I am a journalist and receive the Nobel Peace Prize, I will have the strength to strengthen cooperation and respect for press freedom among the countries of the world and mobilize efforts to achieve peace and security in the world, as well as efforts aimed at confronting the challenges that hinder and restrict press freedom in the world.
    And striving to ensure a world filled with freedom of press and democracy in the whole world.

    With strength and prestige, the press was not subjected to violence, cruelty, illegal arrests and false accusations.
    And the press will become free, and the press will prove and publish the facts. Thus, there will be a world full of facts, and there will be trust between people and the press, and a relationship of love and cohesion will be formed between them.Justice will spread in society, and the pillars of society will be based on the truth, facts, and events that we are going through, and not false, false and false events that lead to spreading corruption and chaos in society.

    Freedom of press is connected to democracy specially parliamentary form of democracy, I think.
    But how??? Here the answer is.
    We know that democracy is a system where people have the whole power. In democracy, people elect their representatives and they take the whole decision. The government take some decisions, policies to run the country. And the press or media plays an important role. They make a bridge between the government and the people. Presses publish the news about the policies, decisions of the state, what the mistakes of government are and so on. They criticises the the wrong things that the government do. The people express their opinions in the newspapers, magazines electronic medias etc. These articles influence the common people to take decisions etc. And the government take suggestions from these. Without the freedom of press, people can't express their opinions. It is a violation of human rights. But democracy is the system where people have the whole power and express their opinions. So, we can see that without freedom of press democracy can't run. That's why I'm my opinion, democracy and freedom of press are connected to each other.

According to what I understood, the Nobel Peace Prize is given to strong people to achieve peace, and the most important thing in our society is peace. I think that the Nobel Peace Prize is very, very important to achieve peace. Democracy: It is something that aims for freedom to express opinion, equality and justice between society, and elections with justice, according to what I understood from your writing. Of course, expressing an opinion is an important thing in our society and in the world of journalism, of course. Justice and equality is also important. No one takes more than another and another more than another. The elections with justice are also an important thing. We in our school held the parliamentary elections and chose justice.

There are some people who are afraid to spread the truth because they are afraid of the government or anything else, but when we say truth, I mean justice, I mean equality, and everyone who won the Nobel Peace Prize all have high opinions, opinions listen. Therefore, governments take away the freedom of journalists. In my opinion, power is also associated with them, because a journalist will not be able to tell the truth unless he is strong.

    I think freedom of press is connected with independence because independence means freedom to do a work. According to the Human right chart of UN, man has the independence to express his opinion. I believe, freedom of press is one of the greatest ways to express the opinions of the people of a country. From the above stem independence means free from outside control so naturally an independent press office can write their own words without the interference of the government. But most of the countries aren't giving that right. As a result if independence is snatched from the press there will be no term called "freedom of press". So I think freedom of press is mostly dependent on independence that had been decided by the government in the most of the country whether approve it or not. The foundation of press is that it has to be independent. No independence, no press. They will be the slaves or hand-puppet of the government.

    FREEDOM OF PRESS and POWER are related with the end goal that no one may anticipate.

    This is the time of advancement. The main bounty in the whole world is information. At no other time have we seen such strength of information in the field of power and may. They say, "Your secrets make you more grounded." And in the hour of information, they sure do.

    However, what undermines your solidarity most, what endangers your haziest secrets is the FREEDOM OF PRESS. This is basic because it propels an informed people by giving induction somewhat private information to everyone. Regardless, the less the general population ponders the contrary side of the coin, the better for the dominants.

    State materials are ensured because of both of two reasons: The grouping of data as touchy, arranged or secret, or the significance of the data to securing the public interest. Numerous states are additionally dependent upon "daylight laws" or freedom of data enactment that are utilized to characterize the ambit of public interest and empower residents to demand admittance to government-held data. Thus, without the force press can't distribute anything.

    On the off chance that it were material science I'd say the chance of press in a country is conversely comparing to the power of the prevalent. It will in general be viably seen if we do just a clear piece of assessment on how the press has been controlled all through the long haul and who did that.

    On the off chance that press doesn't have any ability to distribute, they don't have any freedom to distribute. There is no freedom without power. Force and freedom of press are interrelated. Press need ability to have freedom they additionally need ability to secure that freedom.

    In fundamental words, If the press is stunning in your state and with close to no restrictions, your faint deeds will be revealed, shaking you in the field of power.Which will create a situation like "NO FREEDOM, NO POWER"

    FREEDOM OF PRESS and POWER are connected in a way that no one may anticipate.
    This is the era of technology. The most valuable wealth in the whole world is information. Never before have we seen such dominance of information in the field of power and might. They say, "Your secrets make you stronger." And in the era of information, they sure do. But what threatens your might most, what endangers your darkest secrets is the FREEDOM OF PRESS. This is crucial because it promotes an informed citizenry by providing access to somewhat private information to everyone. But the less the population knows about the other side of the coin, the better for the dominants.
    If it were physics I'd say the freedom of press in a country is inversely proportional to the power of the dominant. It can be very easily understood if we do just a simple bit of research on how the press has been manipulated over the years and who did that. In simple words, If the press is powerful in your state and without any bounds, your dark deeds will be exposed, throwing you off-balance in the field of power.

    "Freedom of the press" and "Safety" are connected.

    Norway, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Netherlands etc countries are the top ranking from the freedom of press. As result, they have low crime rate and the people feel safe and secure.

    On the other hand, North Korea, Russia, China etc countries have the least press freedom. As result, the violence and crime rate of the countries are high.

    So, Freedom of press can ensure the security and safety of the people.

    Freedom of the press and independence are connected, and this means the right of the journalist to publish newspapers, work with them, express their opinions and publish them therein, know, transmit and disseminate news and information objectively, and monitor public and private bodies and discuss and criticize their policies in society, and this is done without all pressures and influences, from Individuals and governmental, administrative, political, economic, financial, social and professional groups falling on the newspaper or journalist, and aiming to distract the press from performing its duties. And all of this is within the commitment to responsibility towards objectivity and honesty, and the supreme interest towards the privacy and dignity of individuals, which is contained in just, non-abusive and democratically legitimate laws, and in professional codes of honor, and the commitment of society and its administrative bodies to provide assistance to newspapers to fortify them.

    Freedom of the press and safety are linked because whoever exercises his right and expresses his opinion freely is at risk, especially by governments that distinguish between materials that they decide to disclose or withhold from the public, and they protect them for two reasons, either because of the sensitivity and confidentiality of information or because the information is linked to protecting the national interests of countries. Therefore, when a journalist comes and deals with this information, the government intervenes by all means to prevent him from transferring it or circulating it and presenting it to the public, which threatens his safety and the safety of his family. Therefore, all countries must enact laws that guarantee the safety of journalists in them.

    The brave journalist I have chosen is Katsyaryna Adreyeva. I think she is brave because she had the courage for broadcasting the violent dispersal of a gathering in the memory of murdered protester Raman Bandarenka. She knew she was going against the power, the government but she didn't stop until the armed riot police broke the door to the apartment she was hiding and arrested them. Why? She felt the urge to make people know what's going on in there and what's the truth. People where shocked at the courage of her and was also angry at the same time, why she had been sentenced to two years imprisonment. Katisyariyna was recognised as Belsat's "Television person of the year". In 2020,she received "The hope of freedom award" from the Lithuanian association of journalist for her deed. In 2021 Katsyariana was nominated for the Dariusz Fikus award by the Press Club of Poland and the Alex Lipay Award in Belarus. I admire her because she was ready to risk her life for the report she knew it could cost her life for broadcasting the violent dispersed of the gathering. She knew her responsibility and duties as a journalist.

    The phrase 'freedom of press' directly links to the word 'truth' because having 'freedom of press' means that you are allowed to report the truth, untainted by any outside influence, and truth, or to be truthful, means that you tell the unchanged fact. By having freedom of press you are telling the truth.

    I think Nobel Peace Prize and Safety are connected because when threatened persons like Malala Yousufzai achieve the Nobel prize, it pulls the world attention to that person and so, doing any harm to the award-holder would bring huge negative consequences for the perpetrator(s). This perspective reduces the chances of danger towards the prize-winner and increases his/her safety up to some extent. However, in some cases, due to the attention, few misguided terrorists might want to harm or even kill the winner by knowing that the winner's activity will damage their false, baseless, misleading ideology. So, from this perspective, I think, Nobel Peace Prize can affect safety in both positive and negative ways.

    Honest journalists always seem to be in the shower of life threats and detainments of their unjust government. Simillar to what happens in the action films that when one gun is pointed at the head of your enemy,he can be made to do anything at the sake of his life.The inverse could happen too! That when you can be compelled to do something dishonest,you can too be prevented to do what's right...I believe the list of journalists in limelight and in newe as the Brave and Fearless is quite short.but millions of valiant journalist souls are there who remain unnoticed, unheard.They had the will and potential to convey the truth,but the threat on their family, on theirselves when led to bloodshed,the loss of these dedicated souls remain unknown to the world. Blackmails, threats, warnings were also thrown towards Maria and Dmitri, but fortunately they didn't have to embrace the eternity,that's why we only know about them,Alas!In a democratic country journalists should have the right to report freely on public interest,but is it really the case?When reporting against any powerful individual,they are accounted for imprisonment , be it the truth."Be brave,Be fearless,Be bold!" these only look good on the pages of a book! But shouldn’t it be the toughest thing on earth when you have your close ones to lose only for your true forecast of news? Isn't then after all freedom of press and safety are all connected?

    l think freedom of the press and truth are logically connected because freedom of the press means to tell the truth and to give people true information about any event.

    FREEDOM OF PRESS and POWER are connected in a way that no one may anticipate.
    This is the era of technology. The most valuable wealth in the whole world is information. Never before have we seen such dominance of information in the field of power and might. They say, "Your secrets make you stronger." And in the era of information, they sure do. But what threatens your might most, what endangers your darkest secrets is the FREEDOM OF PRESS. This is crucial because it promotes an informed citizenry by providing access to somewhat private information to everyone. But the less the population knows about the other side of the coin, the better for the dominants.
    If it were physics I'd say the freedom of press in a country is inversely proportional to the power of the dominant. It can be very easily understood if we do just a simple bit of research on how the press has been manipulated over the years and who did that. In simple words, If the press is powerful in your state and without any bounds, your dark deeds will be exposed, throwing you off-balance in the field of power.

    Freedom of press is connected to democracy specially parliamentary form of democracy, I think.
    But how??? Here the answer is.
    We know that democracy is a system where people have the whole power. In democracy, people elect their representatives and they take the whole decision. The government take some decisions, policies to run the country. And the press or media plays an important role. They make a bridge between the government and the people. Presses publish the news about the policies, decisions of the state, what the mistakes of government are and so on. They criticises the the wrong things that the government do. The people express their opinions in the newspapers, magazines electronic medias etc. These articles influence the common people to take decisions etc. And the government take suggestions from these. Without the freedom of press, people can't express their opinions. It is a violation of human rights. But democracy is the system where people have the whole power and express their opinions. So, we can see that without freedom of press democracy can't run. That's why I'm my opinion, democracy and freedom of press are connected to each other.

    in my analysis, freedom of press and democracy are two inseperable
    press actually works as the "mirror" of a country. all the activities, be it by the government party or by the opposition party , is well reflected by the press. now if the press has freedom, it will expose every important news regardless of its impact on the ruling party.

    let us zoom in on the fact. one of the foremost conditions of democracy is , " criticisms of the government". and any criticism or reproval of the government is expressed best through the press. if the press has freedom, it works without any fear or threat which makes its performance much better.

    again, any kind of dispute or disagreement with the government is exposed by the press, thus the whole nation gets aware of it. so there remains nothing secret between the government and the people. which ensures "the rule of law" most times, which is another condition of democracy.

    to me, if press has freedom it becomes the voice of people , it includes people and ensures the participation of people.
    for example, we know many communist countries. in those countries, the press is only regulated by the government. so how can there be any criticism or reproval of that government? and ultimately there is no participation of the people there which ends up being an undemocratic state.

    for these few factors out of many, i believe "freedom of press and democracy are two inseperable aspects"

    Freedom of the press and power are related.
    If the press does not have the right to publish, then there is no freedom of the press. Without power, there is no freedom. The power of the press and freedom are related. The media needs the power to gain freedom, and it also needs the power to protect that freedom. Lack of power means lack of freedom. Government materials are protected based on the classification of confidential, confidential, or confidential information, or the relevance of the information to the protection of national interests. Many governments make disclosure laws that are used to define the scope of national interests and allow citizens to request access to government information. Therefore, without power, the media cannot announce anything.

    Opportunity OF PRESS and POWER are associated such that nobody might expect.

    This is the period of innovation. The most important abundance in the entire world is data. Never before have we seen such strength of data in the field of force and may. They say, "Your privileged insights make you more grounded." And in the time of data, they sure do. However, what compromises your strength most, what jeopardizes your haziest mysteries is the FREEDOM OF PRESS. This is critical in light of the fact that it advances an educated populace by giving admittance to fairly private data to everybody. However, the less the populace knows about the opposite side of the coin, the better for the dominants.

    In case it were material science I'd say the opportunity of press in a nation is conversely relative to the force of the predominant. It tends to be effortlessly perceived if we do only a straightforward piece of examination on how the press has been controlled throughout the long term and who did that. In straightforward words, If the press is incredible in your state and with no limits, your dim deeds will be uncovered, rattling you in the field of force.

    FREEDOM of PRESS is associated with vote based system exceptionally parliamentary type of majority rule government, I think.

    However, How??? Here the appropriate response is.

    We realize that popular government is a framework where individuals have the entire power.
    In vote based system, individuals choose their agents and they take the entire choice. The public authority take a few choices, approaches to run the country.
    Furthermore, the press or media assumes a significant part.
    They make a scaffold between the public authority and individuals. Presses distribute the report about the arrangements, choices of the state, what the slip-ups of government are, etc.
    They scrutinizes the some unacceptable things that the public authority do. Individuals offer their viewpoints in the papers, magazines electronic medias and so on These articles impact the average folks to take choices and so forth What's more, the public authority take ideas from these. Without the opportunity of press, individuals can't offer their viewpoints. It is an infringement of common freedoms. However, popular government is the framework where individuals have the entire power and offer their viewpoints. Along these lines, we can see that without opportunity of press popular government can't run. That is the reason I'm my perspective, popular government and opportunity of press are associated with one another.

    I am sure that the words (freedom of the press) and (the truth) are closely related, and that is because: -
    _When we want to speak, the truth must be what we speak. This is different. When we are limited in what we say, the truth will never appear.
    _ When talking about a truth, many questions must be exchanged to ourselves, this motivates us to search and discover until we reach it, and when we are restricted, we will not be able to answer all these questions that revolve in our souls.
    _And another thing, I said when we are limited in what we are going to say, what if we are not limited, but we want the truth not to appear, there are many reasons for this, but in general, we cannot speak freely, when we want the truth to be hidden.
