Book Excerpt! Journalism Under Fire, by Stephen Gillers (introduction)

Gillers expertly weaves together legal texts, public policy, and normative theory to shed new light on the Press Clause, which, as the work makes clear, has been largely abandoned by the Supreme Court in recent years. The book develops a persuasive and coherent Press Clause theory and outlines its practical implications.
