Ted Kennedy on the importance of "a free and robust press"

Blog ››› ››› KARL FRISCH

"Throughout our history, the press has been an indispensable check on government. The information produced by the press contributes to our policy debates, exposes wrongdoing, and in fundamental ways makes our democracy work. A government that acts in the sunshine is far less likely to behave in unlawful or tyrannical ways. A citizenry informed by a free and robust press is essential to our nation." – Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, 10/4/2007
