porate auspices, will the true relevance of the First Amendment decline? After all, the Constitution applies to government censorship and/or restriction, not to similar controls imposed by private concerns. The right not to speak has been invoked as critical to media corporations, which naturally want to exercise editorial control over information disseminated under their banner, and to their corporate sponsors who do not wish to be associated with particular viewpoints or modes of expression. One can easily see how this might conflict with the public's right to receive information. The November 1995 editorial decision by CBS to nix a 60 Minutes interview with former tobacco company executive Jeffrey Wigand and local affiliates' election to ax antismoking ads provide an important case in point. The interview finally did air on 60 Minutes on Sunday, 4 February 1996--but only after the Wall Street Journal had provided CBS with legal cover by publishing transcripts of Wigand's trial testimony in their newspaper.
