Thornton P. Knowles On Free Speech

Most people who profess to support and respect the constitutional right to free speech, do so only when the speech in question doesn't, in some way, offend them. In reality, very few people, including journalists, truly believe in or understand the rationale for this basic constitutional safeguard against oppressive government. Perhaps the people who hate free speech the most are politicians. That's because they have so much to hide from American voters. It's been this way for a long time, and doesn't bode well for American democracy.
