In regards to the movie ‘The Post’ the background information is so relevant to today. This is the US District Courts statement as to an injunction against the Post from publishing the ‘Pentagon Papers’.
Judge Murray Gurfein declined to issue such an injunction, writing that “[t]he security of the Nation is not at the ramparts alone. Security also lies in the value of our free institutions. A cantankerous press, an obstinate press, a ubiquitous press must be suffered by those in authority in order to preserve the even greater values of freedom of expression and the right of the people to know.
