I believe that there are limits to the publics right to know. The media tend to manipulate information to the public. The public has the right to know exactly what is going on especially if they can be affected in some way. Complete information should be given to the public, giving them the option as to what they want to do with the information. The media tend to keep secrets from the public, which can cause many conflicts and negatively impact the public. In my opinion by the media manipulating information is what cause the public to panic. The media withhold information until it becomes a severe problem. If the public was to have complete information, certain reactions will be different and certain problems would of been solved. The public have the right to know what can or is affecting them as well as how it is affecting others. Also by the media withholding information, the public is not getting a fair chance in decision making.
