03.03.23 Friday Forum - Carey Shenkman: The Espionage Act and Freedom of the Press
Event Description: A Century of Repression offers an unprecedented and panoramic history of the use of the Espionage Act of 1917 as the most important yet least understood law threatening freedom of the press in modern American history. It details government use of the Act to control information about U.S. military and foreign policy during the two World Wars, the Cold War, and the War on Terror.
The Act has provided cover for the settling of political scores, illegal break-ins, and prosecutorial misconduct. The cases of Eugene Debs, John S. Service, Daniel Ellsberg, Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, and Julian Assange, among others, reveal the threat posed to whistleblowers, government critics, and journalists alike.
Join us for a discussion on this obscure but far-reaching example of government overreach.
Join the conversation with our speaker:
Carey Shenkman is a lawyer, author, and litigator focusing on freedom of speech. He testified in the Assange extradition proceedings, and is co-author of the book A Century of Repression: the Espionage Act and Freedom of the Press.
