On today's episode I give you an excerpt from JFK's speech "The President and the Press". This speech was given 10 days after the Bay of Pigs Invasion, in which America failed to overthrow Fidel Castro. Kennedy discusses the cold war and the balance between our freedoms of speech and the responsibility of newspapers to not publish information that might compromise national security. This recording is from 1961. Enjoy.
