Way back in 1786, only 10 years after writing the Declaration of Independence, Founding Father Thomas Jefferson wrote "Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost." The news media and journalists have always been an integral part of American democracy. This fascinating book uses real-life examples and historical facts to show young readers how the media plays a key role in democracy and how that role has changed over our history.
