There should be no limit except on military intelligence. Too many men die to keep our country safe and it does this country harm when the media reports too many details to the enemy. If they media go ahold of information illegally, then they should not be allowed to report it. If it was released, then it is free game.

Freedom of the press is a double edged sword. The public should expect honesty and fair news. Biased media is hurtful to our country and our leaders.

While the above may be true about the media and its relationship with the government, it does not automatically follow that the same policy should apply to the media reporting on private citizens. There is significant support for the idea that the media should not have unlimited rights to show or report anything about a private citizen. On the other side, there are good public policy reasons why media reporting of corporations should follow similar guidelines as its reporting on government.

In my opinion, the key thing missing from modern media reporting is accountability. Media should be required to print the WHOLE truth, since it is easy to lie by ommission, and there should be significant consequences for lying or distorting facts. The extremely weak libel laws in the USA mean that it is easy for the Media to lie with no consequence. Having a media lie to the populace is almost as bad as having the media print nothing.

A research report forms a channel of communication between the research findings given by researcher on the one hand and the readers of the report on the other hand and effective communication of research findings to the readers is the basic task of the research report.Hence researcher should keep in mind the following precautions while preparing the research report:1. The length of the report should be kept keeping in view the fact that it should cover the subject in length but it should be short enough to maintain the interest of readers.2. The report should not be dull. It should be such as to sustain one's interest.3. The report should possess the features of simplicity and avoiding vagueness.4. Readers of the report are more interested in acquiring a quick knowledge of the main findings and the report should provide a ready availability of the findings with the help of charts, graphs and statistical tables.5. The contents of the report should be well thought out keeping in view the objective of the research problem.6. The grammatical mistakes should be avoided and the report should be prepared strictly in accordance with the techniques of composition of report. Writing such as the use of quotations, foot notes, proper punctuations and the use of abbreviations in the foot notes etc.7.
