Sam Lebovic recently published his book Free Speech and Unfree News: The Paradox of Press Freedom in America. This week he appeared on Texas Public Radio to discuss whether the United States really does 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.
You can listen to the discussion at the website of Texas Public Radio.
