C|M|LAW alumnus Patrick J. Charles & C|M|LAW Professor Kevin Francis O’Neill, have published Saving the Press Clause from Ruin: The Customary Origins of a “Free Press” as Interface to the Present and Future in 2012 Utah L. Rev. 1691.  Based on a close reading of original sources dating back to America’s early colonial period, this article offers a fresh look at the origins of the Press Clause. Then, applying those historical findings, the article critiques recent scholarship in the field and reassesses the Press Clause jurisprudence of the Supreme Court. Finally, the article describes the likely impact of its historical findings if ever employed by the Court in interpreting the Press Clause.
