Do you have questions about what's a First Amendment free-speech issue and what isn't? This new Free Speech Center video may have the answers.
Americans today are confronted by a barrage of questions relating to their free-speech freedoms. Did Colin Kaepernick have the right to take a knee? Can Saturday Night Live be punished for parody?
While citizens are grappling with these questions, they generally have nowhere to turn to learn about the extent of their First Amendment rights. Media lawyer Ian Rosenberg distills free-speech law down to 10 critical issues in his new book, The Fight for Free Speech. Each chapter focuses on a contemporary free-speech question and then identifies, unpacks, and explains the key Supreme Court case that provides the answers.
Ken Paulson, director of the Free Speech Center, and Ian Rosenberg discuss and dissect the current free-speech issues.
