The burden is on media that has the duty to rake up tightly kept secrets of government. The state will never make them public even if there is a law that requires it to be.

Media is considered as classical adversary of the State precisely because it cannot be conned into cooperating with the government. [really?]

Therefore, law or no law, media should find a way of getting the information denied or hidden from the public.

For instance, when John F. Kennedy was elected as the 35th U.S. president, the youngest to be elected to office at the age of 43, the first Roman Catholic U.S. president, certain quarters in the Adventist community and others thought he was going to be the one to initiate the Sunday law while in office.
