The Right to Know: Media and the Common Good.
Marnell, William H.
A study of the citizen in his relationship to the free press, this book examines the right of the citizen to protection against the disclosure of information perilous to the public safety, his right to a fair trial, his right to his reputation, his right to his privacy, and his right to live in the moral climate of his choice. The discussion of each right is supplemented throughout with examinations of famous and lesser-known court decisions. (HOD)
