EDIT
The Trial of John Peter Zenger
AIRED:
The story of John Peter Zenger who fought British rule in the American colonies and printed materials against England's King George. This case is important to American historians and champions of the First Amendment because it represented a strong repudiation of British libel law and also marked an important fissure in the relationship between the American colonies and the mother country.moreless
