Celebrating the First Amendment

From our country’s beginning, the right of the press to challenge the government, root out corruption and speak freely without fear of recrimination has been central to our democracy.

Through accurate newsgathering and reporting journalists risk their lives to keep the public informed and shine light on the many challenges our nation faces today.


Walk with us through history as we showcase how journalists have exercised their First Amendment rights, most notably freedom of the press, to provide the most trusted news impacting our lives.
