The Free Press vs. National Security: A False Choice? with Gary Pruitt

1/20/2014; 48 minutes

AP President and CEO Gary Pruitt argues that a free and independent press is fundamental to a functioning democracy. It differentiates democracy from dictatorship; separates a free society from tyranny. Governments who try to set up a situation where citizens think they must choose between a free press and security are making a mistake that will ultimately weaken, not strengthen them. It's not a real choice. It's a false choice. Recorded on 10/30/2013. (#25945)
