A gag order (or ''suppression order'') is an order, sometimes a legal order by a court or government, other times a private order by an employer or other institution, restricting information or comment from being made public.
A gag law is intended to limit freedom of the press, as by instituting censorship or restricting access to information. In the United States, a court can only order parties to a case not to comment on it; a court has no authority to stop unrelated reporters from reporting on a case. Most statutes which restrict what may be reported have generally been found unconstitutional and void.
This may be untouchable Question:
If someone had knowledge of crimal act but signed a Confidential agreement. A gag is placed on them from revealing the truth. I that person became a reporter for a newspaper.
Can the reveal the truth directly or thru another reporter.
Thanks in advance for the truth
