The first amendment and democracy: The challenge of new technology

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 11 (4):236 – 245 (1996)
The recent explosion in advancements of communications technologies poses interesting challenges to courts and theorists interested in developing proper regulations. Continuing the traditional technology-based approach to press regulation risks preventing the newest technologies from filly serving the democratic dialogue. As the press has evolved into an institution and as advances in communication tend toward private rather than public interaction, we must assist community formation and face-to-face interaction, which proved vital to the success ofthe Constitution itself. Unless these new technologies are regulated accordingly, comrnunity and face-to-face interaction risk extinction.
