Blogging Through History

Well, John's off his meds again; though some wonder if he was ever on them. This time he rants and raves about somebody using "free expression" without being vetted by a "real" journalist or a "real" editor. Sorry John, it was your liberal friends on the Supreme Court that came up with "freedom of expression."

ANB may have to revoke John's web privileges if he keeps getting upset over Arkansans using their constitutional right of free speech. Now, the video he's upset over may or may not be true - the jury is still out on that one. But at the root of the problem for John is that the government doesn't have a say in the material, his liberal friends on the editorial staff have no say, and he has no say.


Go back and study your American history. Many of the pamphlets that were instrumental in moving the colonists towards war were historical versions of today's blogs. They had no editor. The government was unable to control what was said in them. And those that disagreed with the pamphlets had to respond via the newspapers of the day.

John, what is the difference between an American citizen exercising his right to free speech (political speech at that) and some of the things we see in the commercials politicians run each cycle? LBJ's commercial with the little girl and mushroom cloud backdrop was nothing more than a blatant lie. Virtually everything the Clinton's ran about the economy in 1992 was a lie. And I am sure you believe many of the political ads Republicans have run are lies. So why should a citizens rights be infringed upon when yours are not?

Sadly, I must agree with you, John, about the Katie fiasco at CBS. After a long day at work, the last thing I want to see delivering my news on television is a perky idiot. There are many women that are entirely capable of delivering a serious news broadcast; Katie isn't one of them.
