This workshop proves that journalists are those we see on TV shows and movies; sitting with a cup of coffee on one side, holding a cigarette and tears papers until he gets inspired. However, the book addresses journalists suffering with the system and the owner of the newspaper and its sources.

Throughout the three days discourse on freedom to access of information, the study had also tacked economic condition and work relations of newspapers. There was a session in which live testimonials from newspapers, another session addressed registration problems at the press syndicate, then recommendations were taken throughout the final session.
