As far as I know, the guarantee of freedom of press is a legal tool to ensure the government cannot use threats and violence to force a news agency to not publicize a piece of news. But what about the carrot compared to the stick? If the government, or any other powerful people propose to the boss of the news agency or the reporter themselves, "If you don't publish those bad things about me, I can give you whatever you want. Be it money or power." Is it an attack on the freedom of press, if no violence, coercion, or threat of violence is used?
