    Do you understand the term "chilling effect"?  They are forced to police themselves.  That's repression.  The link above at the word "chilling" includes quotes from well-known national security journalists to that effect.

    In other words, they don't have to be arrested to police themselves.  Self-policing is much cheaper and easier than throwing journalists in jail, and lets the government keep a happy face on.

    A slower bleed-out is not a sustainable value.
