Description

Yale University's Robert H. Bork expresses his concern over what he sees as an irresponsible press that seems to believe the public's right to know gives them the right to publish anything, even things the public thinks ought not to be known. Professor Bork warns that the backlash such an attitude may create could lead to far greater restrictions on the press than are necessary or beneficial. Douglas Inquiry XII. Dec. 8, 1978.
