On the other hand, newspapers too often take advantage of their freedom and publish lies and scurrilous gossip that could only deceive and mislead the people. Jefferson himself suffered greatly under the latter kind of press during his presidency”. But he was a great believer in the ultimate triumph of truth in the free marketplace of ideas and looked to that for his final vindication.
