ESSAY ON: Media Access: National Security Versus Public Access To Government Function

Number of Pages 10

This research paper: 10 pages in length. National security is maintained at myriad different levels and under countless different provisions so as to weigh the intrinsic risk associated with each individual perceived threat. When it comes to military tribunals and media access, a strong undercurrent of First Amendment rights versus the threat to national security fuels an ongoing legal debate between the press and federal judges (Anonymous, 2001). The extent to which these secret courts serve to protect against highly sensitive information leaking out through media sources is both grand and far-reaching; that certain cases have reached beyond the concern for protecting national security and granted media access in these hearings speaks to the failing efforts to balance interests of national security with public access. Bibliography lists 25 sources.
