Summary: "While the "War on Terror" and the debate about its constitutionality continues, concerns about the system of American democracy and its morality are at the center of our national life. As the link between the government and the American public, the media are responsible for informing American citizens about Federal policies and practices, and the government's actions and inactions...In this time of war, what role should the media play? Is there a conflict between legality, ethics, national security and defense? And what exactly does having freedom of the press really mean?"
