Stone on Punishing Good Journalism

Textbook writer Geoff Stone discusses why passing a federal law punishing the press for publishing confidential information is not a good idea.

Stone came to our school this semester a gave a talk that was ostensibly about a current issue in free speech jurisprudence but that turned into a somewhat dry discussion of the historical development on the jurisprudence. Good guy, but the lecture wasn't great (I liked his textbook, though).

P.S. He cites Chaplinski early on and I didn't even have to look at the footnote!
