Walalamikaji katika shauri hilo wanadai kuwa Sheria ya Huduma za Vyombo vya Habari ina kiuka Ibara ya 18 ambayo inatoa haki kwa kila mtu kuwa na uhuru wa maoni na kueleza fikra zake, kutafuta, kupokea habari bila ya kujali mipaka ya nchi, uhuru wa kufanya mawasiliano na haki ya kutoingiliwa katika mawasiliano hayo.

Ibara hiyo ya Katiba pia inatoa haki kwa kila mtu kupewa taarifa wakati wote kuhusu matukio mbali mbali muhimu kwa maisha na shughuli za wananchi na pia kuhusu masuala muhimu kwa jamii.
