“It bears remembering that the purpose of a free press, like the purpose of free speech, is to nurture the mind, communicate ideas, challenge ideologies, share notions, inspire creativity, advocate and reinforce America’s founding principles – that is, to contribute to a vigorous, productive, healthy, and happy individual and well-functioning civil society and republic.  Moreover, the media are to expose official actions aimed at squelching speech and communication.  But when the media function as a propaganda tool for a single political party and ideology, they not only destroy their own purpose but threaten the existence of a free republic.

It is surely not for the government to control the press, and yet the press is not capable of policing itself.  We must remember, we are not merely observers, we are the citizenry.”  Mark Levin, Unfreedom of the Press, 5/21/2019.
