Quote from Justice Charles Evans Hughes,

"The liberty of the press is not confined to newspapers and periodicals.
It necessarily embraces pamphlets and leaflets.
These indeed have been historic weapons in the defense of liberty,
as the pamphlets of Thomas Paine and others in our history abundantly attest."
