"Another great example of free press can be found in the Euphrat Museum of Art at De Anza College where I am a work-study intern. They have all kinds of art shows that reflect parts of American life and history that aren’t often mentioned in the regular media… Community art museums like the Euphrat Museum are very important to have because here artists can express themselves freely and sometimes reflect another side of life that isn’t often mentioned in newspapers or on commercial television. This is an important part of democracy — the freedom to show, see, and talk about all kinds of artwork, ideas, and events."
