Storyboard Text

  • Well, I mean like our governor is kind of annoying. Maybe I should write about him
  • New York, 1735, a publisher named Peter Zenger was thinking about newspaper ideas...
  • What should I write about?
  • A couple days later, Peter went to Andrew Hamilton's house, his lawyer
  • Now he wants to take this to court!
  • I can't believe you wrote bad things about our governor! You know that's illegal!
  • Okay, we can try to do this
  • Its okay! We can win this court case! It is time that publishers have more freedom in their writing!
  • Today was the day of the Peter Zenger trial. Andrew Hamilton is giving his closing speech to the jury and to the judge...
  • Good evening everyone! People of the jury, my client Mr. Peter Zenger is a publisher.
  •   He wrote negative comments about our governor...
  •  ...I believe that publishers, authors, writers, everyone, should have the right to free writing
  • After both lawyers stated what they believed and after the trial, the judge had decided what the fate was going to be...
  • I have come to the conclusion that Mr. Peter Zenger will be not charged. In the power invested in me, I hereby say that freedom of the press is allowed!
