ABSTRACT
The article discusses the debate on whether the U.S. government can ban the distribution of books, as the country celebrated the Banned Book Week. Topics discussed include the media's coverage of the Banned Book Week, the opposition of liberals to the Supreme Court's 2010 decision in the Citizens United case which involved the banning of a movie about former first lady Hillary Clinton 30 days before the election, and the restriction of the free flow of information.
