The 2005 Jefferson Muzzle Awards For The Abridgment Of Free Speech

"Since 1992, the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression has celebrated the birth and ideals of its namesake by calling attention to those who in the past year forgot or disregarded Mr. Jefferson's admonition that freedom of speech 'cannot be limited without being lost.'" The center has announced its picks for the Muzzle Awards for 2005. The list includes:

  1. The Federal Communications Commission
  2. The (Motion Picture) Classification and Rating Administration
  3. The U.S. Marshals Service
  4. The United States Department of State and The United States Department of Homeland Security
  5. The Virginia House of Delegates
See their site for the full list. To be even handed, the center also awards the William J. Brennan, Jr. Award to those who notably advocate freedom of expression.
