"In the First Amendment, the Founding Fathers gave the free press the protection it must
have to fulfill its essential role in our democracy. The press was to serve the governed, not
the governors The Government's power to censor the press was abolished so that the press
would remain forever free to censure the Government. The press was protected so that it
could bare the secrets of government and inform the people. Only a free and unrestrained
press can effectively expose deception in government. And paramount among the
responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from
deceiving the people and sending them off to distant lands to die of foreign fevers and
foreign shot and shell."
