Public vs. Private Places Review

When you are planning your Assignment 2: On the Street video, make sure you consider…

Public vs. Private Places
The First Amendment guarantees freedom of the press, but freedom of access is not protected.

In general, you do not need permission to report in public places like streets, sidewalks, beaches, parks, train stations, or university campuses.

Some restrictions may apply to airports, schools, or individual public or government buildings.

If you are on private property (medical facility, movie theater lobby, business office, restaurant, mall, store, or a private home) you need to obtain permission to report. If someone asks you to leave private property, you must leave.
