42 Notre Dame L. 865 (1966-1967)


If I were to suggest that the public force be used to silence and hide sources of information about government as Mr. Cooper's committee, the Supreme Court of New Jersey, the United States Attorney General, and United States Senator Morse have suggested, I could begin with impressive authority. If I were to suggest nothing at all, as the organized press has done, I could begin with swelling rhetoric on the nature of man. But for my suggestion, direct restraint on the press, the only thing at hand is a fable, the story of a crisis that nearly prevented the marriage of the Princess of Ap and the Prince of Upi.
