I'm not sure where you live, but the media in the US and Canada is for all practical purposes free (in the sense of being uncensored).  If nothing else, the Internet pretty much guarantees the free exchange of information for those countries where Internet access is generally available.
 

You may be confusing "free" with "unbiased".  It is difficult if not impossible to find a media organization, especially a commercial one, that could not be accused of bias.  They are free to publish whatever they like, but their choices of content and the perspectives they offer are usually limited in some way.


Ron,
we all might have different interpretations of words "Free Media". For me free media means the one free of influences of any kind when it reports anything to the general public. In US, where I live I do not see any single media source that is not under some kind of influence, sometimes it's of the owner's, sometimes it's of those who fund it, sometimes it's of those who run it.   
In the whole world these days the media is used as a tool, to promote, not necessarily truth but agendas. Truth is used only to the point where it helps those agendas, when it does not, it's absent!
