Apple CEO Tim Cook used his Twitter pulpit to remind us that democracy depends on a “free and diverse press.” The message marked World Press Freedom Day, which is a trending hashtag on Twitter.

Mr. Cook is correct. Democracy relies utterly on a free and diverse press, and I’ll add independent to the mix. This particular #WorldPressFreedomDay comes at a time when the free press is under threat around the world, and I applaud Mr. Cook using his platform to bring a little attention to the subject.
