      Peter.

      Did you send them a case of their favorite beverage, as a thank you for the advertising… As well as a thank you for exposing how stupid they really are?

      Btw…

      Previous article comment.

      B.O.: There is no such thing as free speech. (Did the check clear?)

      It’s curious how there was absolutely no First Amendment challenges the NY Times could be aware from the prior administrations

      I still remember the take-down article one of their writers did on one of the FDA scientists involved in that lawsuit that also magically disappeared from view

      Defending the “free speech” of people like Coulter, Yanopoulis (sp), and other extreme right wingers today walks the knife edge of supporting the destruction of our democracy.
      Let’s look at France today. The French have given a voice to Le Pen and the National Front for years and today that party which, although adjusting its message for the popular vote and existing laws on speech,is in the final round of elections for the presidency. One can argue that free speech works because she will probably be defeated. Never the less French democracy has been weakened because her party and even her newly moderated speech has made hatred of Muslims more publicly acceptable.
      Our country today stands much closer to the demise of democracy under 100 days of the Republican Party’s rule than in my lifetime.This Party under Trump has, by presidential edict not even a congressional debate and vote vote, has nullified 65 years of social legislation and presidential edicts and brought us not only deeper into the previous president’s wars but to the brink of a really big war with North Korea and others.
      How close to shouting “fire” in a darkened theater is right wing speech that supports our country under the Patriot Act and a maniacal leader and his party now in control of all arms government?

      Traven.

      Free speech only works if the population is truly educated… And has an IQ over refrigerator temperatures.

      Which is most likely why the ‘public’ education system in the United States has been dumbed down so dramatically.
