It is so difficult to draw a clear line of separation between the abuse and the wholesome use of the press… --Thomas Jefferson

It is so difficult to draw a clear line of separation between the abuse and the wholesome use of the press, that as yet we have found it better to trust the public judgment, rather than the magistrate, with the discrimination between truth and falsehood. And hitherto the public judgment has performed that office with wonderful correctness.
