There is an option to decline but I'm not sure how long this'll remain a choice given this news.

Re: Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

In theory, yes. But most of the public are happy consuming lowest common denominator media like the X Factor and reading Hello! magazine instead watching the state and following current affairs.
