    Journalistic perversion that supposed lie joins a few media increasingly more subordinates to political power and economic, and a few media professionals slaves of the medium in which they work. Even so, gradually greater controls are introduced in our society to truthful information. The press has gone from being the fourth power, or Watchdog (dog guardian) to be called lapdog (lap dog). Since the end of World War II United States has been striving to promote a free flow of information worldwide, unidirectional flow most of the time, but has just repaired to ensure the quality and accuracy of that information. The financial crisis also affects the media, in a way that goes beyond the clipping of the templates or the reduction of production costs. Own information is conditioned by the economic vulnerability of the media, increasingly in need of monetary injections coming from public or private, powers that make formal and editorial line of the newspaper or the radio. Many information professionals we observe with astonishment how is convocan multitudinous press conferences which prohibits formulated questions, thus highlighting the subjugation of the press to the other powers. However the health of the profession must not depend on broadband Internet, or interviews with politicians and businesspeople with questions prepared and agreed upon, but a global awareness of journalism as the fourth power that question to the other three. For someone who approaches with interest to publicize the news of the world, your country, or your neighborhood, increasingly more complicated to know what come from reliable sources and are a mere rumor caused by imagination or interest.
