During the times of PRL (Polish People's Republic) most of journalists functioned under a significant pressure. Various instruments, such as: ideological, political and in extreme cases provocations by the police were used. The political milestones that occurred during the years 1945-1989 resulted each time in an increased citizen activity and involvement among journalists, and then softening of censorship and finally in increasing citizens' freedom.
