New York Times Advocates Abandoning the Constitution: First Amendment Hardest Hit


Yes, the New York Times really did publish an oped piece suggesting that we walk away from those parts of the document we find inconvenient.

Of course, if you’re an elite journalist at an organization such as the Times or NBC News, you wouldn’t expect to have to be bound by all those laws and stuff passed to keep the hoi polloi in check.

May I suggest to the constitutional law professor who wrote the piece that he look at Article  V. That article lays out the amendment process which has been used to adjust the document as the country has grown and changed. If you believe that changed times require changed rules, offer an amendment.

  1. Yeah, that piece was not cool. Our Constitution, as amended, has been around for over 200 years. The amendment process works…even if we want the entire thing re-written. 2/3 of each house and 3/4 of legislatures can and have approved 27 amendments so far…

  2. First amendment hardest hit? Hogwash.

    The New York Times would certainly approve of the First Amendment – well, the free press part at least. And only for them, not for any of you unwashed blogger-types.
