The study uses case study approach reinforced by survey and content analysis methods. From the results of the study found, most graphic indicator of the freedom of journalists, public sphere openess, and the determination of the content, showed a random trend, while the freedom of access and opportunity of expression showed a rising trend. Inconsistencies in the implementation of elements of press democracy showed the dilemma in TK. Factors causing a dilemma in TK are: inconsistent leadership, unclear structure and functions of TK’s organization, and uncertainty management attitude. Bureaucratic power pressure lead TK’s organizers confused to divide partisanship to the community or the government.
