Freedom Of The Press

A free press is important for a strong democracy. It’s no wonder that the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects the freedom of the press. It ensures that newspapers, magazines, and other press establishments can publish their news without being controlled or censored by the government.

Today is World Press Freedom Day, a time of awareness first celebrated by the UN General assembly in the early 1990s. This year’s theme is “Keeping Power in Check: Media, Justice and The Rule of Law.” Show your support for journalists by subscribing to your local newspaper. They need our support!
