Allen Neuharth, founder of USA Today, takes aim at the American Newspaper Publishers' stance on government regulation and the developing world of electronic publishing. He cites differing regulatory constraints on publishers of newspapers, owners of television stations and the telephone services. Makes predictions about the future of newspapers, arguing that the rights to freedom of the press which have protected print media for 200 years must apply equally to evolving telecommunications-based information services. Examines the public's right to information, new threats to individual privacy, and potential for grave government abuses of the balance of privacy and freedom in the twentyfirst century.
