‘Is It Legal To…?’: Censorship
You’ve read about it in the news – books that have been challenged or banned from being taught in public schools. Book bans have often been criticized in the media as being a form of censorship. Other types of censorship that you may have read about recently could center around obscenity, national security, or fair trials.
Sandra Davidson is professor emerita at the University of Missouri and has taught media law for 30 years. In The Missouri Bar’s newest “Is It Legal To…?” episode, Davidson dives into government censorship – what it means, what is and isn’t allowed, and everyday examples.
