Freedom of the press

Thanks to our friends at Auburntownship.org for this information:

U.S. Court_ Bloggers Are Journalists

Nice to know that we have first amendment protection as permitted by the U.S. Constitution.

“As the Supreme Court has accurately warned, a First Amendment distinction between the institutional press and other speakers is unworkable: “With the advent of the Internet and the decline of print and broadcast media . . . the line between the media and others who wish to comment on political and social issues becomes far more blurred.”

“So everyone—not just journalists—benefits from the First Amendment’s protections, which makes bloggers (even slimy ones) legally equivalent to journalists”.

Lobbyists for Citizens tries to use parody in many of our fact based articles.

Dictionary Definitions for the word parody:

As a noun:
As a verb:
“produce a humorously exaggerated imitation of (a writer, artist, or genre)”
