I worry about my child and the Internet all the time, even though she’s too young to have logged on yet. Here’s what I worry about. I worry that 10 or 15 years from now, she will come to me and say ‘Daddy, where were you when they took freedom of the press away from the Internet?’
Mike Godwin
We have more freedom of the press than any other country in a similar position. Even way back in the frightened ’50s, Communists, for example, could publish their magazine. The KKK published their own books. But face it, the mass media is controlled by money.
Pete Seeger
Freedom of the press is not just important to democracy, it is democracy.
Walter Cronkite
The only security of all is in a free press.
Thomas Jefferson
By a declaration of rights, I mean one which shall stipulate freedom of religion, freedom of the press, freedom of commerce against monopolies, trial by juries in all cases, no suspensions of the habeas corpus, no standing armies. These are fetters against doing evil which no honest government should decline.
Thomas Jefferson
I believe in a real democratic system, with a state of law and freedom of the press. I believe in a free, open-market economy integrated with the world. And I believe in equality of opportunity. Those are my basic beliefs. On top of that, of course, I believe in some moral values.
Sebastian Pinera
Those who suppress freedom always do so in the name of law and order.
John Lindsay
Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.
Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness. A genuinely unfashionable opinion is almost never given a fair hearing.
George Orwell
I get a little nauseated, perhaps, when I hear the phrase ‘freedom of the press’ used as freely as it is, knowing that a large part of our proprietorial press is not free at all.
Harold Wilson
A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.
John F. Kennedy
Four hostile newspapers are more to be feared than a thousand bayonets.
Napoleon Bonaparte
The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy. One’s right to life, liberty and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly may not be submitted to vote; they depend on no elections.
Robert H. Jackson
The people shall not be deprived or abridged of their right to speak, or to publish their sentiments; and the freedom of the press, as one of the great bulwarks of liberty, shall be inviolable.
James Madison
Some of the press who speak
loudly about the freedom of the press are themselves the enemies of
freedom. Countless people dare not say a thing because they know it will
be picked up and made a song of by the press. That limits freedom.
Geoffrey Fisher
Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins. Republics and limited monarchies derive their strength and vigor from a popular examination into the action of the magistrates.
Benjamin Franklin
I have great respect for the news and great respect for freedom of the press and all of that.
Donald Trump
