"The founders of the United States understood that a free press is critical to public discourse, and that any attempt by the government to suppress it affects citizens’ fundamental right to debate government policies and actions publicly. At the same time, it is generally understood that a free press is not without limits.

The Supreme Court has many times been called upon to determine the balance of these critical interests."
