Bob Corn-Revere on censorship: the 'bastard child of technology'
So to Speak: The Free Speech PodcastEp. 25
New technologies and the censorship instinct seem to go hand-in-hand. From the first days of the printing press, to the rise of radio and the telephone, to the advent of the internet, innovations in mass communication are often followed by a fear of what will happen if these novelties are left unrestricted -- or uncensored.
On today's episode of So to Speak, we speak with former Federal Communications Commission chief counsel and current Davis Wright Tremaine partner Bob Corn-Revere about what it means for censorship to be the "bastard child of technology."
