„You could say that the paparazzi and the tabloids are sort of the "assault weapons" of the First Amendment.“

—  Charlton Heston, Context: You could say that the paparazzi and the tabloids are sort of the "assault weapons" of the First Amendment. They're ugly, a lot of people don't like them, but they're protected by the First Amendment — just as "assault weapons" are protected by the Second Amendment. Interview Fox News Channel (15 September 1997)

Let's repress them. … Frankly, I'm not a big fan of the First Amendment.

„Net neutrality is the First Amendment issue of our time.“

—  Al Franken American comedian and politician 1951
Context: Net neutrality is the First Amendment issue of our time. Today, a blog can load as fast as the Wall Street Journal — and, if the blog is good, it can get more traffic than any media conglomerate. But if bigger companies can pay for faster, priority Internet access, that blogger no longer has a shot. And these big companies know that when they pay for access, they win. They want preferred treatment on the Internet like the preferred treatment they get in the rest of their lives. "Sen. Franken's Speech to Free Press Group in Minneapolis" (19 August 2010) http://www.franken.senate.gov/?p=news&id=1044

„And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment“

—  John F. Kennedy 35th president of the United States of America 1917 - 1963
Context: Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed — and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian lawmaker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment — the only business in America specifically protected by the Constitution- -not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and the sentimental, not to simply "give the public what it wants" — but to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mold, educate and sometimes even anger public opinion. This means greater coverage and analysis of international news — for it is no longer far away and foreign but close at hand and local. It means greater attention to improved understanding of the news as well as improved transmission. And it means, finally, that government at all levels, must meet its obligation to provide you with the fullest possible information outside the narrowest limits of national security — and we intend to do it.
