The former, of course, implies an obligation of the government to grant proper treatment to all requests for free access to information submitted by citizens, journalists, media, NGOs, political parties - the public in general. The latter, however, implies something more - an obligation for the government to provide the public with as much information as possible on what it does and how it does it before someone actually requests it. Even if the government complies with this second obligation (and it is well known how extremely problematic this can be in our country), it is not irrelevant how exactly it does that. Marshall McLuhan, a famous media theorist, rightly said that even the choice of media through which information is conveyed to someone is in fact very important information.
