Floyd Abrams Discusses Where Opinion and Voice End Publicly

Floyd Abrams is an attorney at Cahill Gordon & Reindel. He has expert knowledge of constitutional law and freedom of speech.

While often ignored, the general public shares a commonality for the boundaries of public speech. Abrams reviews some protective measures the country has set in parallel with the First Amendment. For example, the action of suing protects personal rights. On the other end, it is a crime to publish details on the building of an atomic weapon.

Abrams argues that journalistic ethic may not always be fulfilled, but impartiality should always be applied. People deserve to view the opinions they want. However, this leads to the public hearing what they already agree with. This idea cripples open-mindedness and learning the facts, and notions of accuracy behind the opinion.
