Banned in America

 

The right to freedom of speech only protects people against adverse actions by the government:  It does not insulate them from retaliation in the private economic sector.  Therefore, freedom of speech is usually the purview of the rich, whose resources allow them to survive such retaliation.

The right to freedom of the press doesn’t necessarily give writers access to the press, and, even when it does, these writers incessantly have to run through a gauntlet of “editors,” who ultimately decide if certain works are “worthy” of publication, and, if so, in what form.
