Not all articles can be screened due to the nature of the subject matter and for legal reasons. Generally, articles about felony charges filed, felony convictions, legal notices and public notices cannot be screened. The article to be screened cannot be about another person -- only the person mentioned in the article can request screening.
Newspapers only print Public Information
First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Newspapers produce and deliver news and information which they feel is important -- most often from public information such as arrest reports, traffic infractions, accidents, indictments, lawsuits, jury verdicts, property records, legal notices, and many other sources of information which is freely available to anyone at any time. Newspaper publishers do not have access to any information which is not also available to the public at large. All information published in a newspaper is "public information."
The use of your name in an article does not mean you own it. Newspapers deliver news on all sorts of public matters which, in addition to information found in the public registers, may include statements you make to a reporter or official, your photograph, background and other information provided by you or others, rebuttals, opinions, and other information such as court-ordered legal notices, and historical and statistical data.
After you submit the form, we will review your request. We do not judge! We must follow the law regarding censorship of the press and only look at your request from that perspective. If we are legally able to screen the article, we will make every effort to do so
We will contact you to let you know if the article can be screened and the amount of the service fee.
The Press of the United States of America is constitutionally protected from interference, including by the government. If you are a law enforcement officer, elected official, government employee or contractor, government official, attorney, or officer of the court contacting us in an official capacity; or any other investigator, by law you must reveal that to us immediately when we contact you.
