Bill of Rights: Alexander Hamilton, Federalist, no
On the subject of the liberty of the press, as much hasbeen said, I cannot forbear adding a remark or two: Inthe first place, I observe that there is not a syllable concerningit in the constitution of this state, and in the next,I contend that whatever has been said about it in that ofany other state, amounts to nothing. What signifies a declarationthat "the liberty of the press shall be inviolablypreserved?" What is the liberty of the press? Who can giveit any definition which would not leave the utmost latitudefor evasion? I hold it to be impracticable; and from this, Iinfer, that its security, whatever fine declarations may beinserted in any constitution respecting it, must altogetherdepend on public opinion, and on the general spirit of thepeople and of the government. And here, after all, asintimated upon another occasion, must we seek for theonly solid basis of all our rights.
