U.S. students say press freedoms go too far

I found this article to be troubling, especially this:

“The survey of 112,003 students finds that 36% believe newspapers should get “government approval” of stories before publishing; ”

Aren’t they learning anything. Have they heard of Peter Zenger, do they know the history of prior restraint and the problems it can cause.

    It is really a serious problem.

    Young people following current events or even reading the newspapers is a very serious problem. I am afraid we are getting closer and closer to an all-bread-and-circus mentality all the time.
