The right to freedom of expression is guaranteed in the Declaration on the Citizens' Rights and Fundamental Principles of San Marino Legal Order. The media operate freely, and no major impediments were reported in 2004. The only private radio station in the republic is Radio Titano. La Tribuna Sammarinese and San Marino Oggi are the two major daily newspapers. State-owned broadcaster Radio Televisione della Repubblica di San Marino operates both a television and a radio station. Internet access is open and unrestricted, and a wide range of Italian media are available. The San Marino Web-based information portal was launched in September 2004, aiming to publish news about the economic and political life of the republic.
