The media are expected to help check the power of government and assist citizens in pressuring government to correct problems. However, this role can be too aggressive and negative at times and news reports become sharp personal attacks on politicians. At other times, journalists develop cozy relationships with politicians in order to secure perks (interview, inside story, etc.) which clouds their objectivity.
