The power of the press should never be underestimated and must never be abused. This week marks the 75th anniversary of National Newspaper Week and the theme -- The Power of the Press -- points to the importance of watchdog journalism, accurate reporting, strong editorials, comprehensive public notices and a free, open public forum.
