Censorship and Utilitarianism Memo
8 pages in length. The objective of this memo is to demonstrate the relationship between utilitarianism and censorship, if there is indeed one that truly exists. At issue is whether or not utilitarianism has a place in the framework of censorship and if it does, to what extent is this association deemed beneficial or disadvantageous. When assessing these concerns, it is important to consider the fact that utilitarianism represents the belief that what serves the greatest number serves the greater good, rather than what is favorable for a few; similarly, censorship has to do with forbidding people to express themselves in the manner best suited to their needs. With that in mind, one can easily see how censorship and utilitarianism may not have the most harmonious relationship. The writer discusses utilitarianism as it relates to censorship.

War and Censorship of the Press
7 pages in length. There were three primary concerns for instituting executive press censorship during Operation Desert Storm: the questionable tactics the media use to purportedly report the truth; the very real chance of classified information reaching enemy hands; and the ever present possibility of reporters getting harmed or even killed while covering the front lines. These issues are significant to the field of communications law, because they represent the sanctity of privacy that is so instrumental in the overall safety of wartime activities. The writer addresses these three issues as they pertain the censorship implementation. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
