Freedom of the Press: That makes America different from the rest of the world. It is sad – that true indepth investigative reporting has become alarmingly rare

Edmund Burke

Quote by Edmund Burke

A Free Press makes us different from other countries, but the question is where has all the investigative reporting gone – as budgets were slashed in newspapers and TV stations across the country

A Free Press makes us different from other countries, but the question is where has all the investigative reporting gone – as budgets were slashed in newspapers and TV stations across the country.

The Newseum’s Five (5) freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
1. Freedom of Religion
2. Freedom of Speech
3. Freedom of the Press
4. Freedom of Assembly Peaceably
5. Freedom to Petition the Government for Grievances
