The press is a 20th century phenomenon in its present form. Oral communications and book publishing flourished for antiquity and through the middle ages but only since modern constitutions guaranteed a free press has it been so proactive and investigative. In times when things published were usually the dictates of authorities  a separate press and library system ensures democracy.
