Differences in free speech rights for print and broadcast media

Kristin Marquardt

Within the right to free speech, there are regulations for both print and broadcast media.

In broadcasting media, foul language and particular scenes and images are censored or cut out. They are also forced to follow certain codes, that prohibit things like promotion of drug use. Essentially, making the media “G” rated. In printed media, regulations include things like ‘information that would be useful to the enemy’ during war times, and things about abortion, religion and the economy.
