ABSTRACT
The article argues that efforts to restrict media photography of military coffins returning from the battlefield violate the freedom of press and speech values underlying the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment. Topics discussed include legislative efforts to eliminate the ban; reviews important jurisprudence involving media access to prisons, courtrooms, and other areas; and legislative solution to prevent the reinstatement of the ban on coverage of military.
