MEMBER KENTUCKY PRESS ASSOCIATION Newspapers Must Always Fight For Their Freedom Kentucky, NATIONAL EDITORIAL ASSOCIATION records. These records should be open for all but are usually open only to party members. Secrecy at any level of government is dangerous and corrupting and usually shuts off all freedom ot information.

At a recent Kentucky Press Association meeting one of the main topics taken up for consideration was the continuous fight newspapers have to make for freedom of information. Brought into the discussion was the fact that government officials have developed a philosophy that holding office entitles one to decide what the public should know.
