Hated ideas and the American Civil War press

Giovanna Dell'Orto, Hazel Dicken Garcia

Research output: Book/ReportBook


An examination of the reactions among newspapers to controversy and censorship during the Civil War, the book attempts to answer a series of questions about controversial ideas among newspapermen. The authors begin from the premise that journalists have a unique professional relationship to the First Amendment,
and then look for reactions to “hated ideas” in order to see how that relationship works in practice. In particular, they are interested in the effect of the Civil War, and
by extension other national crises, of the views of journalists.
