Many US teenagers against freedom of speech

A considerable percentage of american teenagers believes that the US is commited to spreading “freedom” abroad. At the same time, they think that there is too much freedom of speech and press in the US.

From BBC News US teens ‘reject’ key freedoms:

[...] Over a third of the 100,000 students questioned felt the First Amendment went "too far" in guaranteeing freedom of speech, press, worship and assembly. Only half felt newspapers should be allowed to publish stories that did not have the government's approval. [...] Some 83% of students polled felt people should be allowed to express unpopular views, as opposed to 97% of teachers. [...] The president of the John S and James L Knight Foundation, which conducted the research, said: "Ignorance about the basics of this free society is a danger to this nation's future."
