Abstract

The press freedom in Indonesia has been shown various phenomenon in different regions. Some regions show a pleasing condition, while others still show significant pressure on the exercise of the press freedom. The majority stays as the partly-free regions, where problems related to press freedom are still occuring and progress is running quite slowly, including the province of East Java, for two years in a row. One significant indicator that constitutes East Java as a partly-free province is low level of independency of journalists and newsroom in the process of news production. The sub-indicators includes accuracy and balance of news produced by the media company and level of independence from powerful groups. The article breaks down the indicator into a more detailed description, as to explain the sustained connection between the media company and political party. The description consists of observation/research/incident/case related to the above mentioned connection. Later on, the article argues that the sustained connection between media company and political party brings impact to the exercise of press freedom, particularly in the province of East Java. This connection has developed as a conspiracy, and in most cases it becomes the hindrance for the journalists and newsroom to present news truthfully.
