Is any blogger out there saying anything — do they deserve First Amendment protection? – Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.)
Feds move to limit who is a “covered journalist” deserving constitutional protection, And believe me, these guys ain't John Peter Zenger.
“What is a journalist today, in 2013? We know its someone who works for Fox or AP, but does it include a blogger? Does it include someone tweeting? Are these people journalists and entitled to constitutional protection?” Durbin not only labels freedom of the press as an entitlement, he goes on to suggest that the Bill of Rights is outdated, saying, “We need to ask 21st century questions about a provision in our constitution that was written over 200 years ago.”
Maybe we can get some GOP folks to invite bloggers who have broken real stories to the hearings on the House side. Nah, too "controversial."
