The general control of a newspaper is in the hands of the Editor. He has a certain number of pages and he has to fill these up with printed matter such as news, advertisements, pictures and special articles. Newspapers can be regarded as the watch dog of the nation. Therefore it should be impartial, thruthful and fearless. It must use its unlimited powers and freedom for the good of the nation.
