Educating the public about the importance of a truly free press for democratic self-government. We expose and oppose news censorship and we promote independent investigative journalism, media literacy, and critical thinking.
An informed public is crucial to democracy in at least two basic ways:
- Without access to relevant news and opinion, people cannot fully participate in government.
- Without media literacy, people cannot evaluate for themselves the quality or significance of the news they receive.
Censorship undermines democracy. Our work highlights the important links among a free press, media literacy and democratic self-government.
