Podcast: President Trump vs. Freedom of the Press

President Trump has been vocal about his disdain for the press, vowing to toughen libel laws and crack down on so-called fake news. But how far can he go in curtailing the freedom of the press? That is our topic this week on the legal-affairs podcast Lawyer 2 Lawyer.

Joining us to help flesh out this issue are two experts in First Amendment and media law:

  • David A. Schulz, partner with Levine Sullivan Koch & Schulz in New York, senior research scholar in law and Floyd Abrams clinical lecturer in Law at Yale Law School, and co-director of the Media Freedom and Information Access (MFIA) Clinic at Yale.
  • Howard Cooper, a founding partner with Todd & Weld in Boston who regularly handles significant civil rights and First Amendment matters, as well as libel cases on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants.
