Freedom of the press – two concepts

Within Western democracies there seemed to be no accord on where the limits
of freedom of the press should be. The history of freedom of the press is a
history of the debates on the limits and borders of a free press. There is no
“original meaning of freedom of the press,” a formula which is often used in
order to give weight to an argument. Our modern understanding of freedom of
the press is the result of different social developments in the nineteenth century,
which explain the different limits for a free press. Personal rights and/or state
interests seem to have different levels of importance in legal systems and
perceptions in Germany and the English-speaking world. There is a stronger
emphasis in the Anglo-American world upon limiting the free press for reasons
of state security than in the Federal Republic of Germany, and vice versa where
personal rights are involved. These differences are explained by the fact that in
the English speaking world John Stuart Mill’s argument for freedom dominated
the debate while his justification based on Utilitarianism never prevailed in
Germany. This paper will explain the different development.
