As citizens of the United States, we share the basic right of freedom of the press.  Our freedom allows us the right to speak our minds and be kept informed about the world around us.  


The press is an important tool that connects our public to the important issues that should be known among us.  Eliminating our freedom of press, is the destruction of the bridge that unites us as a country.
