This thesis begins with the premise that freedom of expression is the cornerstone of a democracy and any limitation on it must be prescribed by law, be in support of a legitimate aim and be necessary in a democratic society. Freedom of expression is a right of everyone, including persons with disabilities and the media, the latter in an instrumental sense, as the media fulfils its task of informing the public and contributing to public debate.
