Quotations on Freedom Of The Press




“Freedom of the Press, if it means anything at all, means the freedom to criticize and oppose”

                                                                 George Orwell



“Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.”

                                                                Thomas Jefferson



“Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.”

                                                                Benjamin Franklin


“Let us never forget that those who oppress freedom by attacking the freedom of the press are neither patriots nor lovers of democracy.”

  1. Thanks, Charles. All wise men! I so appreciate living in a democracy in Spain. I have to stop myself getting too emotional over the autocracy which is over-taking sanity in the world. Power-mad and greedy men should (somehow) not be allowed to dictate their iron-hold on humanity. If only! Sincerely, Joy.

  2. I don’t think there is much freedom of the press now and most of what the press seem to print is fake anyway. I have been able to prove this a few times in my career when I’ve had the inside track on a financial story. I don’t even read the news any more.
