This program from the acclaimed Cambridge Educational series The Amendments to the Constitution thoroughly analyzes the history and text of the First Amendment. Experts, including Dr. Nadine Strossen, President of the American Civil Liberties Union, discuss their interpretation of the Amendment and the freedoms it guarantees. Numerous court cases are cited, including those that led to the "clear and present danger" test and the "Brandenburg Standard" in determining free speech. The history of the freedom of the press is detailed, citing the "Pentagon Papers Case" (New York Times Company v. the U.S., 1971) as well as cases involving "prior restraint" and the Minnesota Gag Law.
