For (economic) liberal thinkers—and more explicitly the neoliberal version—this largely implies a rejection of regulatory interference. This rejection of regulatory interference is legitimized by pointing to the danger of political censorship when the state gets involved in the democratically sensitive media sector (a critique shared by most critical scholars), but more importantly by emphasizing the superiority of the market. The public sphere is understood as functioning like a commercial market: opinions float around freely and are on offer in the “marketplace of ideas,” where they compete through the laws of supply and demand for the scarce resource of the audience’s attention (Cammaerts and Carpentier 2007: 3f; Costa 2004: 15f; for affirmative perspectives, see Veljanovski 1989; Rosston and Hazlett 2001).
