Freedom of the press is the right to circulate opinions in print without censorship by the government. Americans enjoy freedom of the press under the First Amendment to the Constitution, which states: ‘Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech or of the press .’
It says Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of the press. But doesn’t the President calling them the enemy of the people in essence abridge the freedom of the press by merely saying they are the enemy of the people?
Maybe not. But what about censorship. The press publishes a story about the President…in this case the Washington Post. And he starts tweeting and talking about the press ( media) being the enemy of the people. Isn’t he in essence trying to stifle the press or censor what is believable or what is not?
Shouldn’t it be up to the people to decide?
