First Amendment Theory

First Amendment Theory

Research theories which argue in favor of freedom of speech or press as communicated in the First Amendment. Three of these theories are addressed in your text: marketplace theory, self-government (Meiklejohnian) theory, and individual freedom (self-realization or fulfillment) theory. Other theories include absolutist theory, ad hoc balancing theory, preferred position balancing theory, and access theory. Select four of these theories to research in detail and compare and contrast the historical development and implications of these theories on speech and communication.

Then reflect on which theory best communicates your perspective and how it impacts your decision making in communication and media practices both personally and professionally.

Your paper should be 2-3 pages in length not including a cover page and a reference page. Support your statements with 3 scholarly references in addition to the course text.
