The Need for a Free Press

In the Headlines

Since establishing the importance of journalistic freedoms in the nineteenth century, The New York Times has continually demonstrated the importance of free communication between press and public, from the publication of the controversial Pentagon Papers in 1971, to its navigation of the contentious relationship between the press and the Trump administration. The articles collected in this volume take readers through decades of American journalism, with a particular focus on the changing notions of press freedoms, notable cases of censorship defiance, addressing bias and controversy in different media outlets, and highlighting the lives and legacies of journalists in the 21st century. Media literacy questions and terms are included to help readers further analyze news coverage and reporting styles.
