Press Exceptionalism and the Religion Clause

RonNell Andersen Jones, Brigham Young University School of Law, is publishing Press Definition and the Religion Analogy in the Harvard Law Review Forum. Here is the abstract.


In a Harvard Law Review Forum response to Professor Sonja West's symposium article, "Press Exceptionalism," Professor RonNell Andersen Jones critiques Professor West's effort to define "the press" for purposes of Press Clause exceptions and addresses the weaknesses of Professor West's analogy to Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church & School v. EEOC in drawing these definitional lines.  The response highlights distinctions between Press Clause and Religion Clause jurisprudence and urges a more functional approach to press definition.
