First Amendment is being used to take down the Second.Submitted by Chessienut on Thu, 12/20/2012 - 11:20
Sorry to belabor the obvious but this ridiculous rant by Piers Morgan demonstrates where the real issue is.
Perhaps America is being directed to focus upon the wrong amendment to cure all of the nation's ills. The consolidation of the power of the press, and as I use the word press it relates to all media, has created a juggernaut of power which is being used to threaten all other rights given by the Constitution.
Their thinly veiled attacks on internet freedom are clear evidence that they view sites such as this as a threat, and will continue their subversion until they prevail.
This is a perfect storm they have created, if we attempt to reign in these mega conglomerates and their abuses, they will turn any efforts we attempt back upon us and focus anything we attempt back against internet freedom.
I'm aware of the laws which have been discarded that protected the nation from that which has occurred, i.e. the consolidation of the power of the press. Any suggestions where this should lead?
