Slouching Toward Post-Journalism — Martin Gurri

The New York Times and other elite media outlets have openly embraced advocacy over reporting....

The opposite of censorship, which amounts to silencing opposition, is advocacy, which amounts to propaganda. It used to be called "yellow press" although that term seems to have lapsed into history.

While this is chiefly about politics, advocacy and censorship affect not only politics but also economics. 

As always, follow the money and power.

Diligence is the antonym for censorship. Censorship is any attempt to under value the works of others.
Autonomy describes the surrounding conditions of no censorship.

Stenographer is a pejorative used to describe journalists who don't do their job.
