The Source: Does The U.S. Really Have A Free Press?
We have a constitutional right to the free press. But with a government that increasingly obfuscates what is going on, and routinely misses the mark on transparency, do we actually have one?
In his book "Free Speech & Unfree News: The Paradox of Press Freedom in America" Sam Lebovic makes the case that simply saying we have it and relying on the freedom to print information doesn't mean we have a free press with access to the real news.
