Conflict between the rights of the Executive branch of the government (to classify its documents on the basis of what it considered “national security”) and the right of the press to inform the citizens of the country of vital information about the co

In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg was an economist employed by the RAND (Research and Development) Corporation, which provided the United States government with analysis in various areas, including defense. As part of his work for RAND, Ellsberg had access to classified United States government documents about the conduct of the Vietnam War. The documents showed that the U.S. government had consistently lied to the American people about the possibility of winning the war (the documents showed that winning was highly unlikely) and about the number of casualties that would be the result of continuing America’s involvement in the war (the casualties would be far higher than the government had publicly stated). Ellsberg photocopied the documents and provided copies to The New York Times newspaper, with the understanding that they would be kept confidential. However, the Times began to publish the documents—which came to be called “the Pentagon Papers.” The Times was taken to court by the government to force it to stop publication of the papers. Ultimately, the United States Supreme Court decided the case ofNew York Times Co. v. United States in favor of the Times. This decision was a landmark First Amendment ruling. Justice Hugo Black wrote the majority opinion, and Justices Brennan, Stewart, White, and Marshall wrote concurring opinions. Chief Justice Burger and Justices Harlan and Blackmun wrote dissenting opinions. This famous Supreme Court case is based on a conflict between the rights of the Executive branch of the government (to classify its documents on the basis of what it considered “national security”) and the right of the press to inform the citizens of the country of vital information about the conduct of their government. The Court came down on the side of the citizen’s right to know.
