Book Review: Mick Hume, There Is No Such Thing as a Free Press…and We Need One More Than Ever.

Ratings: (0)|Views: 2|Likes:
In our Internet age, we can sometimes make the mistake of thinking that
journalism has become opened up to a plethora of opinions and free
expression. This viewpoint is especially tempting in the United States
due to digital advancement, the diversity of population, and, crucially,
the protection of free speech enshrined in the First Amendment of the US
Constitution. The First Amendment states, “Congress shall make no law
abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press,” (p. 71) reminds Mick
Hume in his book There’s No Such Thing as a Free Press. Although this
book argues that the First Amendment is still vital for free speech in
America, Hume identifies some vital trends that are currently placing
considerable limits on journalists’ freedom.
