A publicly funded poster exhibit extolling press freedom has been removed from the Boyden Public Library in Foxborough, Massachusetts, following complaints over what some regarded as graphic and inappropriate content. Stephen Lewis, a collector and former union official, had produced the display, which consisted of more than 20 posters protesting threats to freedom or describing dangers faced by news-gatherers. Library trustees removed the posters on September 19.
