All reports must be cleared through the Ministry of Truth.

Before any news conference can begin, all reporters in the room must kneel and kiss the hand of the administration official. At the end of all news conferences, all reporters must stand and clap.

I thought Trump was so anti-free speech yet here we are with an anti-free speech president that all democrats sucked off.

In practice, that means the information from an interview can be used in the story, but in order for the person’s name to be attached to a quote, the reporter must transcribe the quotes they want and then send them to the communications team to approve, veto or edit them.

"Free Press" lol

Eh less a Free Press issue and more a problem of Access Journalism. "Off the record" is not actually a thing; they can publish whatever an official says to them, and put name to the quote. Once. If you burn a source, they will be less willing to open up to you next time. That would mean more work in the long run.

You're free to say whatever you want about the king. Once. If he doesn't like what you write, you'll be drawn and quartered, but we still have press freedom.

Don't be silly. They aren't facing criminal penalties; they face having the door slammed in their face next time they ask for an interview.
