Press freedom in US

A survey published in USA Today gets to a rather weird conclusion (at least i would say so): one in three U.S. high school students say the press ought to be more restricted.

The survey of 112,003 students finds that 36% believe newspapers should get “government approval” of stories before publishing; 51% say they should be able to publish freely; 13% have no opinion.

Asked whether the press enjoys “too much freedom,” not enough or about the right amount, 32% say “too much,” and 37% say it has the right amount. Ten percent say it has too little.

I just hope this is not the deep belief of the new generation and is just a lack of education which will be soon corrected.
