A fascinating read on the First Amendment by Miss Wasilla:
"If (the media) convince enough voters that (it) is negative campaigning, for me to call Barack Obama out on his associations, then I don't know what the future of our country would be in terms of First Amendment rights and our ability to ask questions without fear of attacks by the mainstream media."Once again, Sarah Palin nearly leaves me speechless. In case you forgot what it looks like, here's the text of the First Amendment:
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.Because as we all know, the potential chilling effect that media criticism can have on the free speech rights of political candidates is huge.
