Often in the media, the journalists can twist the truth and outright lie about a situation. This is done in order to benefit them or the company at which they work. These distortions of the truth are exploited in politics when an event happens in parliament, or the personal lives of the politicians. With the recent events concerning Barnaby Joyce and Vikki Campion, the media has sprung into action and journalists from every news outlet have given their opinion on the morals and values of Joyce.

However, what Lord Atkin relates with power is also well placed with the notion of liberty. Liberty does corrupt into licence and is prone to be abused.
